Blue Spotted Ray Toy


SKU: EYS2663016988790 Category: Tags: , , , , , ,


Also called the Bluespotted Ribbontail ray, this colorful creature is found in the Indian and western Pacific Oceans. It gets its name from the electric blue spots on its back.

  • Scientific Name: Taeniura lymma
  • Characteristics: More than just a simple coloration, the bluespotted ray’s unique physical appearance serves as a warning for the venomous spines on its tail. The venomous barbs usually remain hidden unless the ray intends to use them, but with careful observation of this hand painted figurine you just might spot them!
  • Size and Color: The bluespotted ray has a predominantly grayish-tan body, similar to most rays, although they are notable for the blue spots along their back. 6.5 inches long and 3.5 inches wide, this model is about as wide as a deck of cards and a little longer than a dollar bill.

    The Blue Spotted Ray was originally described by Swedish naturalist Peter Forsskal in 1775. Despite sharing a genus with the Marble Ray, some scientists believe it may be more closely related to the freshwater stingrays of the Amazon River. 

    The Blue Spotted Ray is a near-threatened species, largely due to the destruction of its coral reef habitat. It is also collected for aquariums, although it does not do very well in captivity.
