Stingray Surprise in the Maldives

YouTube Link

Tourists feeding fish from a dock in the Maldives were surprised by the sudden appearance of a hungry stingray. The large specimen swam up to the tourists close enough for them to touch. Undaunted, they petted him and continued to throw fish food into the water.

How would you react to a close encounter with a large stingray, in or out of the water? Would you keep your distance from these lovely creatures after the death of Steve Irwin raised awareness of their rare but possibly lethal reaction to being threatened? -Via Tastefully Offensive

HOLY COW! That's how I'd react. Wonder if it had been there before. And does it throw water on itself by waving around like that? Or is it just splashing? That's a fascinating glimpse at a beautiful creature.
