Are there rabbits under the sea? Well, sort of. They don’t have big, floppy ears or are covered in fur… but I find they are more mystical than just your regular run-of-the-mill rodent.
The Fins United Initiative is excited to share with you another #flatshark: the Raspy River Stingray (Potamotrygon scobina). Like many other freshwater stingray, many misidentifications occur but the Raspy River Stingray is especially confused with three rays: P. motoro, P. castexi and P. signata.
Is it any surprise that this rare chimaera we’re about to show you is assessed as “Data Deficient” (DD) by the IUCN?
