|Steve will be long remembered for his animated TV character!|
|We are thankful to Ewe & ewe-r family for all the memories!|
|Ewe have to be very careful not to startle me! Ewe"ll get the "point" if ewe don't!|
Stingrays are very graceful to watch while they are swimming, propelling their up to 7 ft. bodies with relative ease! They live from 15-25 years & grow as large as 7 feet long & weigh up to almost 800 pounds! They are fascinating creatures that are normally docile by nature. For example, there are a variety of vacation spots that promote swimming with rays for recreational purposes! Stingrays, however,if threatened, will use their venomous, serrated barb located on their tail.
|Please don't comment on my size! I've scheduled a tummy tuck! |
Stingrays take a mostly defensive posture, resting on the ocean botton camouflaged with sand. Their body color allows them to blend really well with their environment.They hope to go unnoticed by their predators, such as sharks, sea lions, & sometimes other stingrays! With their mouth facing down, rays rely heavily on their sense of smell & their electro- receptors to assist them in catching their food.They are carnivorous & their main diet consists of snails, crustaceans, & fish.
|I'm a bottom feeder that's on top of my fishing game!|
Stingrays mate during winter & develop for about 9 months in the mother's womb.There the litter will feed off the yolk in their egg sacs & drink milk in the mother's uterus. Finally, a litter of up to 15 "pups" will experience a live birth, immediately able to swim & hunt with their mother!
|Being born was OK but I'm ready to "Move on up with the Jeffersons"!|
|Notice to all predators:Beware of Staff Infection!|
|I got Ewe-r back!Ewe must try to Trust Me!|
Today, as Ewe walk with the Shepherd, enjoy the security that He offers as Ewe-r Protector. There is nothing that Ewe will face that He can't handle!
