Cownose Ray

Animal Facts

Cownose rays congregate in large schools exceeding hundreds of individuals in one school. While these rays have in the past been implicated in contributing to the decline of oyster fisheries in some areas, it’s now known that their presence supports the natural maintenance of healthy oyster reefs.


Can be found worldwide in tropical and temperature oceans, bays, estuaries, and river mouths.
