Cownose rays are amongst the most commonly displayed rays at aquariums around the world, and ones that have had their venomous barbs pinched or removed also frequent aquatic touch tanks, making them a very popular exhibit. Despite their prevalence in aquariums and other displays around the world, cownose rays are considered near threatened and their global population is slowly declining.
