    If you go to Ripleys Believe It Or Not Aquarium in Myrtle Beach, SC they have a "Ray Bay" Where you can lean over a little rock wall and pet the singrays that come up to you. Some are small others are up to 2-3ft wide. Huge suckers they are...but so gentle and they feel like velvet. I loooove that part of the aquarium. Though occasionally a little shark will come up and they probably dont bite, but i'm not gonna pet them and find out that they do. lol

    Heres a pic from their website--

    Wow that's dangerous. If a person got stung they could get in a lot of trouble...

    I would love to have a stingray too, in my 100g. My lfs has them, but from what I've read the stings are extremely painful, and dangerous. Also, they're very messy fish to keep.
    10 Gallon FW with Male Betta, 1 male Endler, and 5 Zebra Danios, 100 Gallon with Sevs, Acaras, Parrots and Loaches.

    Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming...

    I ain't no expert but if I had a large enough tank and preferably like one of the octagon tanks Petco has, then I would get one in a heart beat to try.

    Those stingray petting area rays are saltwater/brackish cownose rays, their sting is like that of a bee's. Rays and sharks are not nearly as dangerous as people are led to believe. In Discovery Cove in Orlando I swam with the cownose rays in a large ray feeding pool.

    Freshwater rays need big tanks, very clean water, and an advanced keeper. Some species are hardier than others. Some are much larger than others. They are nice but not for beginner to medium aquarists.

    I have a timeshare in Curacao, at the Sea Aquarium Resort (literally RIGHT next to the Curacao Sea Aquarium). I went there like, everyday. The earliest was the best so you could see them dumping the 150+ feeder fish into the huge jewfish tank. mauahhaa. But anyway, it was really cool, something like 80+ aquariums. Look it up, its revolutionary as far as aquariums go.

    Anyway, they had a ray feeding pool Eagle spotted rays and cow rays, and I fed them a few times. I actually stood in the water (up to my mid-thigh) with fish in my hand, and they came and like vacuums - sucked it right out. Very cool. As long as you dont... say.... step on one or grab it, you wont get stung. They're very docile creatures.

    Those species are docile. Others are more jumpy, hence more likely to sting.

    I go to Atlanta every year for races at Road Atlanta, and have visited the Georgia Aquarium a few times. They have a Ray & Shark pool there like the one Megan was talking about. Lean right over the wall and pet them! They had bottlenose sharks, which look like small hammerheads. No one was bitten when I was there! The Rays were very soft, and the sharks felt kinda like sandpaper, from what I can remember
