Round body, blue-gray colour with dark spots, upto 1,6 mtrs width. Will approach at close range, watch out for tail spines!
Mostly near rocks and on sandy bottoms, living on depths from 1 upto 50 metres.
These rays are quite common around Cocos Island and each encounter is an absolute spectacle to see how elegant these animals move.
