Caption: Pink whipray (Himantura fai) being observed by a tourist on a boat. H. fai whiprays are venomous but placid fish that are a popular attraction for tourists. They gather over sandy seabeds, feeding on shellfish and other prey on the sea floor. This whipray's size at birth is about 0.5 metres long, but it can grow to nearly 2 metres in length. It is found in tropical waters in the Indo-Pacific region. Photographed in front of Tipaniers Bay, Moorea Island, French Polynesia, in the Pacific Ocean.
