Did you know that there are many different types of rays?
One fascinating ray is the electric ray. Electric rays get their names from their ability to generate and discharge a strong electric current. Touching one is like sticking your finger in a light socket! This stunning adaptation allows the ray to shock predators and prey. The shock from an electric ray can knock down a full grown human. Wow, can you say shocker!
That’s all for now. See you later.

Recently, WhaleTimes Director Ruth Musgrave was invited to visit elementary schools in Oregon City, Oregon to talk about sharks. She discovered the kids in Oregon City LOVE sharks as much as we do.
The kids were inspired to celebrate Fintastic Friday early and send a “Big as Life” thank you to biologists helping sharks.
If you follow the link below you’ll see Dr. Dean Grubbs, Florida State University Coastal and Marine Laboratory, showing off his thank you!Take a look! https://www.facebook.com/FSUCML
Thank you kids — and Dr. Grubbs and our friends at Florida State University Coastal and Marine Laboratory! Together we can save sharks!
