sting rays

The Phoenix Zoo has a new exhibit of stingrays, and we arrived during feeding time! Colin was brave and fed the stingrays some fish and shrimp. Nate preferred to watch. You put your fist in the water, holding the fish. When the stingrays get close, you open your fist and they slurp the fish right from your hand! What a fun birthday activity!

I'm surprised Nate did not want to jump in and swim with the rays.
Mom & I got a chance to do this when we vacationed in MN a couple years ago. The rays feel like they have a leather coat on.
