Friendships between animals and humans are pretty common, and they mostly occur with domestic animals. This friendship is far more unusual!
Watch as a young boy befriends a stingray, and actually pets and feeds the stingray right out of his hand!
Although most stingrays are not aggressive, the massive size of this stingray makes this odd friendship even more amazing to see. I’m sure that little boy will hold on to this memory forever!
Stingrays come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, making up the eight families of stingray species. The largest species is the manta ray, which is part of the eagle ray family. They can be over 20 feet wide and weigh close to 3,000 pounds! The stingray in this video is most likely not a manta ray, as it lacks the distinctive cephalic fins near the mouth that make the manta look like it has horns, earning it the name sea-devil or devilfish in some parts of the world.
