Caption

Blue-spotted stingray (Taeniura lymma) head. The eyes are the raised bumps, and the mouth is on the underside of the head region of this flattened body. One of the spiracles (breathing structures) is below and right of the nearer eye). The two spiracles are used to obtain oxygen from the water. This ray, also called the blue-spotted fantail or ribbontail ray, inhabits the oceans of the Indo-Pacific. It reaches lengths of around 70 centimetres, feeding in shallow sandy areas on molluscs, worms, shrimps and crabs. Photographed in the Red Sea, at St John's Reef off the coast of southern Egypt.
