Animal Spotlight: Cownose Stingrays

Sink or swim is a true dilemma for these
Cownose Raydocile invertebrates. Characterized by their lack of a swim bladder, an organ that helps most fish float, the cownose stingray will actually sink if it isn't swimming. That's why you'll see our stingrays constantly moving in Stingray Bay. They possess a venomous spine used only for self-defense against a predator in pursuit. While harmless when not threatened, stingrays in our Ray Touch Tent have had their spines trimmed, allowing guests the opportunity to get hands-on with these fascinating creatures.  

You Can Help

With springtime on the horizon, it's time to start planning out your perfect vegetable garden! Consider these companion plant options to help ward off unwanted pests:
  • Garlic planted among roses will ward off aphids.
  • Sage with carrots (or other plants in the cabbage family) will ward off pests.
  • French marigolds among tomatoes will repel greenfly and blackfly.
