What the stingray eats and what eats the sting ray
The stingray is a fish and as such will feed on smaller fishes and any other edible sea creature which comes floating by unaware that a stingray is camouflaged in the oceans floor. The stingray is hunted by other larger sting rays, sharks and man.
Sting Ray Features
It is called a Sting Ray, but the sting ray is able to sense electrical charges of other ocean creatures. This sensing of elctrical charges also gives the stingray an advantage when it comes down to hunting. So how do these ocean gliders sense electrical charges of its preys? Well, the Stingray has electrical sensors called ampullae of Lorenzini.....ok i have no idea where that name came from but i will sure to look it up some day. But for now lets just grasp what this name means. The ampullae of Lorenzini are special sensing organs called electro receptors, forming a network of jelly-filled pores. They are mostly discussed as being found in cartilaginous fish (sharks, rays, and chimaeras) While the stingray's eyes peer out from its dorsal side, its mouth, nostrils, and gill slits are situated on its underbelly. Its eyes are therefore not thought by scientists to play a considerable role in hunting. Many rays have jaw teeth to enable them to crush mollusks such as clams, oysters, and mussels.
When they are inclined to move, most stingrays swim by undulating their bodies like a wave; others flap their sides like wings. The tail may also be used to maneuver in the water, but its primary purpose is protection.
The stingray's spine, or barb, can be ominously fashioned with serrated edges and a sharp point. The underside may produce venom, which can be fatal to humans, and which can remain deadly even after the stingray's death. In Greek mythology, Odysseus, the great king of Ithaca, was killed when his son, Telegonus, struck him using a spear tipped with the spine of a stingray.
