  • Cownose Rays can grow to 7 feet wide from wingtip to wingtip. They range through the warm waters of the western Atlantic Ocean, from New England to the northern coast of South America. The unique crease where their fins meet gives them a cow-like face.
  • Scientific Name: Rhinoptera bonasus
  • Characteristics: With a flexible stinger trailing behind and wings in mid flap, these Cownose Rays look ready to swim. Give them a home in an ocean project for school, or send them swimming off as prizes or decorations for an ocean-themed party.
  • Size and Color: A light brown top contrasts with a white underbody and black accents, giving this sleek figure a most realistic look. If you gave a nickel a tail, you’d have something about the size of these Cownose Ray minis.

  • History

    Although other ocean dwellers face population declines, Cownose Rays are one species that is thriving and increasing in numbers. Their next of kin includes Manta Rays, Bat Rays, and Spotted Eagle Rays, but Cownose Rays are a separate species. Their original name meant nose wing, and their current scientific name means bison wing, but they’ve kept their nickname because of the indentation between wings that looks like a cow’s muzzle.

    This species of Eagle Ray inhabits the coastal waters of the western Atlantic Ocean. They reach a wingspan of 3 ft. and weigh around 26 lbs. Like other rays it possesses a stinger on its tail with a weak venom. Touching pools at aquariums often feature "de-barbed" cownose rays.
