Cowtail stingray

Pastinachus sephen


Specimen was about 120 cm in lenght but this species may reach 300 cm long 180 cm across and 250 kg in weight.


Cowtail stingray has a widespread distribution in the tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific. They are usually found on sandy bottoms in coastal waters and on coral reefs to a depth of 60 m.


The serrated spine of the cowtail stingray is potentially dangerous, and this species is regarded as particularly dangerous to handle as its long tail is capable of reaching over its back to strike someone gripping it from the front
