TAMPA, Florida. (WFLA) – People on a Florida beach were surprised, as others did not seem to notice, as a group, known as a “fever” of stingrays swimming by them in the Gulf of Mexico recently.
The video was posted by Look Through Canoe on Facebook on June 14th.
Cownose rays, named for the shape of their faces, travel in fever with large numbers, sometimes by the thousands.
According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, people around the world have been photographed migrating every spring and fall.
The rays migrate between western Florida and the Yucatan, heading to western Florida in the spring and southwest to Mexico and the Caribbean in the fall.
