Stingrays in their natural habitat

Most people think of stingrays as aggressive animals, however, in their home environment, they are gentle giants. They glide along the sea floor every day foraging for shell fish. They are not aggressive towards humans unless provoked. Snorkelers almost never have any problems except for the famous Steve Irwin incident.
