Default Spotted Eagle Ray - Dubai Creek

Went for my run/walk around the Creek (Dubai) this afternoon, spotted a Spotted Eagle Ray (I just Googled it). It had a ‘wingspan’ of maybe 6ft, and it was swimming on the bottom very close to the edge of the wall.

Actually saw it twice, once on my way out and again on my way back - pointed it out to some tourists (I think) on both occasions so they could take some pics.

Hopefully it swims away before somebody catches it and throws it into some aquarium or kills it.

It should probably start swimming the other way then - it was heading into the Creek
