Steve Irwin, the man that made nature films fun.
Here's the YouTube news on his death
It shows how close you can come I guess.
Death by Stingray.
I've been in the water with I think with either Sting Rays or Manta Rays in Belieze and Mexico and stung by one in California. The ones in Mexico were a lot bigger. Over ten feet across. I swam right over one.
In Belieze, they would swim right at you, hoping for food.
You could even pet them.
The one that stung me in California was when I ran into the surf.
It took a few hours for the pain to go away enough to go out Boogie boarding again.
