  2. Oooh, really? I would love to be somewhere that actually had stingrays swimming around. I know it may not be safe, but I would still enjoy it.

    Are they, in fact, dangerous?

  3. Stingrays always look so chill to me, but not in a hippie way, more like a mafia don.

  4. Some are poisonous, as the ill-fated and much-loved Steve Irwin pointed out.

  5. A mafia don... That depicts stingrays perfectly.

  6. Awww! Veggie! Is that my blog on the sidebar? You are such a charmer, you sly dog ;) I'm cutting redmeat out of my diet just for that.

  9. @Jkane - Ooooh! High five!

    @november17 - I didn't get to pet them. It wasn't a petting tank, although it was low to the ground with very low walls surrounding them. It was tempting, but there was someone standing around to stop anyone from putting their hands in. A bit of a tease, if you ask me.

    I did get to pet one years ago, though. Along with a horseshoe crab. Boy, that sure was exciting.....
