This skate picture I found while searching the web for stuffed animal stingrays! It’s adorable! This baby skate reminded me of my trip to the Oregon coast aquarium! They had four baby skates! I know it’s a small post but it was so cute! As you can see this ray is so young its wings are still transparent.

Fact Time! Rays give live birth!
