Cayman Islands photos

TR4993-D. Southern Stingray (Dasyatis americana) view from underneath showing its mouth, nostrils and gill slits. Modified dental plates in its mouth allow it to crush clams. It also feeds on fish, crabs and worms. Electroreceptors (the tiny black pores, called ampullae of Lorenzini) help it locate prey buried under the sand. Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, Caribbean Sea.<br />
