As far as thee deep blue goes, for those of us who happen to live close to the shore or even visit over the summer, we've been told to always keep an eye out for all the dangers that the big blue has to offer. Not to go fire off into the ocean due to deep waters and all mystery that might hide within. Especially stay away from any big fish and never, ever, do you go in the water if you see something that has a huge fin on its back.

For some of us however, it is the urge to get close up and personal with the threat in the hope to achieve great rush and adrenaline and feel more alive then ever. These people are usually the ones that you see on TV possibly under the accident part of the show or even sometimes under the hero's list. There is really no telling what is going to happen once you actually get this close to such a powerful being such as the Stigngrays.

Stingrays are usually very docile and curious, their usual reaction being to flee any disturbance, but they sometimes brush their fins past any new object they encounter. Nevertheless, certain larger species may be more aggressive and should be approached with caution, as the stingray's defensive reflex (use of its poisoned stinger) may result in serious injury or death.
Stingrays are not normally visible to swimmers, but divers and snorkelers may find them in shallow, sandy waters, more so when the water is warm.

Take a look as this guy gets close enough to share hugs with this Stingray and the bond between them!
