that is quite odd, also very rare for stingrays especially, to jump out of the water.

I've heard a few similar stories of stingrays leaping out of the water at people. I've seen a few while on vacation as well, they're pretty interesting animals. It's an interesting story, thanks for sharing this with us!

Interesting. :3
I hope the women is alright. I would say that it would be a bit scary.

Thank you for sharing, wolfman200789!

Stingrays would never eat anyone, silly. =P They're generally gentle creatures when around humans, as long as they are respected when being interacted with and people mind their tails.

This is an interesting story. The link to the video lead me to something entirely different, but when I searched the site, I found there are several other stingray-related stories, only not all of them turned out so fortunately.

Video 1: http://xfinity.comcast.net/video/stingr ... 690678792/
- an eagle ray leaps aboard a boat and stings a woman, killing her.

Video 2: http://xfinity.comcast.net/video/stingr ... 691914306/
- a spotted eagle ray leaps out of the water and rams into the head of a woman in a boat, the impact of which killed them both.

With how big it was, that wouldn't feel very good. I didn't know that they could leap out of the water like that. Thanks for sharing!

Stingrays often jump out if the water to "breach" or clean themselves no one quite knows how this works. And yet again i sound like one of those animal show people that bores children. :shock: But i like that feeling. :mrgreen:
Hunting is not destruction and i get annoyed by people all ways going like: OOO your killing the animals!
I just say: No. its population managment, and could someone who hates animals know so much about them?

This is quite interesting... And strange... I hope that doesn't happen too often, but it does sound like a funny thing, and sad thing, to see. Thanks for sharing this!
