|The Blue-Spotted Stingray has an unique way of
obtaining its food.
The mouth is located on the ventral side of the ray. For feeding,
the stingray buries itself in the sand. Since the stingrays' eyes
are on the dorsal side, when buried, the sense of sight is no longer
useful to the ray. To catch its prey, the stingray uses its highly
sensitive sense of smell and electro-receptors (much like a shark).
Stingrays most commonly feed on mollusks, crustaceans, and even small
fish. The rays are able to penetrate the shell of its prey with
its shell-crushing teeth.
