Adopt a Cownose Ray

The kite-shaped cownose ray can be found in the Chesapeake Bay from May through October and leave the bay for coastal waters of the south in late fall. They travel in large schools near the surface of the water. As they swim, the tips of their fins break the water's surface which often causes incorrect "shark sightings". Cownose Rays feed on clams, oysters, and mollusks and use their powerful dental plates to crush the shells open. They are able to uncover the shellfish by flapping their fins against the bottom sediments. Adopt a cownose ray today!
