Stingray Barbs

Scientific Name:
Myliobatoidei sp.
Shipping Restrictions:


These are the spines of stingrays, essentially elongate, modified scales located near the base of the animal's tail. Stingrays use these as defensive weapons to pierce the skin of attackers and deposit a toxin in the wound.

Though rarely fatal to humans, the sting can be extremely painful. A terrible exception to this general rule resulted in the death of "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, who was stung directly in the heart in 2006, while working on an underwater documentary film sequence.

Scientific Name:             Myliobatoidei sp.

  1. Interesting curiosity

    Posted by Shawn Armstrong on Sep 18th 2018

    I got this on a whim and I must say it’s neat to see up close. Would make a great gift for an ocean lover or morbid curiosity for someone into the crocodile hunter.
