How Did that Manta Ray Get There?

There's something fishy - literally - in San Francisco: a manta ray found on the sidewalk. alilrusky of Exprience Project has the story: Link


Looks more like a cownose ray from this angle. Note the lack of a "dorsal" fin in the back, and instead, two smaller fins on the sides.

Either way, poor guy.

That's what's known around area divers as a bat ray, sometimes referred to as a cow-nosed ray. Looks like whoever it was also severed the tail. Sad.

"to add some morbid humor to this bizarre turn of events, one of the officers on the scene poured a half-empty water bottle on the poor creature... Maybe in hopes of magically reviving it..."

What a dick.

There are hundreds upon hundreds of ray species in the world, but somehow, they've all automatically become "manta rays" to 99% of the population.
