About the Cownose Stingray

Native to the western Atlantic Ocean, cownose stingrays are named for their unique forehead, which look like a cow’s nose. They use their strong, flat teeth to crack open the shells of bottom-dwelling shellfish like lobster, crabs, and clams. Famous for their migrations, Cownose rays gather in schools as large as 10,000 for long journeys through tropical waters.
