Cownose Rays - 192 pcs - Good Luck Minis®

SKU 345222

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.

  • 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.
  • 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: If you gave a nickel a tail, you’d have something about the size of these Cownose Ray minis, which each measure about an inch in length.
