I wonder how would it taste like though.......
Good catch, although animal rights advocates beg to differ.
*Update: So I've now learned that manta rays doesn't have sting barbs, foolish me. Check it out here.
During the course of their evolution, Mantas lost the stinging barb and their pectoral fins developed into graceful, flapping wings, but their flattened body shape remained.Thanx for the info anonymous. And Steve Irwin, too bad, no revenge for you.
p.s. sorry about the one-liner, I really had to post this when I saw the pic.
