Stingrays near Mediterranean coast

LanguedocLiving, Aug 10

Several sting rays have been spotted near the coast in the Var, and also in Corsica.

Their sting can be deadly for young children or frail adults so if you do spot one, keep well away from it.

Olivier Dufourneaud, director of the Oceans Policy Department said “These stings are exclusively defensive, they do not even use them to hunt…There are 32 species of rays in the Mediterranean…They come to breed and give birth near the coast during the summer. Summer is the time of year when the probability of seeing them is highest.”
