Default Re: Girlfriend and I went to the aquarium, she touched a stingray for the first time

I dove with them at Shark and Ray alley in Belize. As soon as the boat dropped anchor they started circling the boat. If you held you hand out and wiggled your fingers, they'd come up thinking you had a fish for them. Even if you didn't they'd try to take it from your hand, and since they have no teeth (just bony ridges) you could hold onto their upper jaw and they'd pull you through the water.

Had to watch that you kept you legs up and didn't touch their stinger, or it would hurt you. Also if you touched them anywhere else they didn't like they'd whip you with their stinger also. Didn't want to go out like Steve Irwin (although this was years before that).
