🎥 New Video: "Hunting" a Stingray - Yes I know that Im crazy! 😆

Hi diving interested people and Steemians, I have another awesome highlight from my diving trip to the maldives for you: A really crazy video, in which I "hunted" a beautiful Sting Ray (Eagle Ray) with my camera! 😆

Yes I know, this was very crazy, because Stingrays are very dangerous if you are getting stinged by them... 😅

Don´t try this for yourself guys, it was my own risk and I decided to do it for myself!!!

In addition I had my unfolded selfie stick, so it looks closer as it really was and Im always feeling safe with my stick underwater, because I think it´s a nice tool to keep away dangerous animals in a worst case. 😄

Here you can watch my new diving video with the Eagle Ray:


At the end of the video you can see two other divers for a short moment and they showed me a bird, because they wanted to give me the sign, that this was very dangerous... 😂

But let me tell you something: Sting rays are nearly never attacking divers, they are more dangerous for swimmers, because they will sting you if you are walking on them. I never heard from an attack on divers in the ocean and I really searched a lot for information about it.

If you are interested in learning more about Stingrays, here you can read more about this animals in general: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stingray

And here you can find more information about this special stingray species in my video above: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eagle_ray


Best regards and hear you in my next article!

Loves diving and am happiest under the waves, surrounded by the amazing wildlife of the ocean. Am a newbie but have already become passionate and just want to do more. That was a fantastic video. Made me envious!

This is awesome, I love to inspire other people to explore the ocean and maybe to learn diving too, because for me it is the best hobby ever! Thank you very much for your great feedback & your visit on my blog here @drwillwho!

You are very welcome and I'll look forward to following more of your adventures... as long as you don't mock my more simple dives in the gulf. I long for chances to travel and will definitely use SCUBA as my excuse to go. Will enjoy the varying cultures both above and below the waves.

Stingrays are not dangerous except when walking where they might be laying on the sea floor. Divers have been known to grab onto the tail and enjoy a little ride.

·

Haha, really? Have you tried it by yourself? ;-)
I have read that some people died because of a Stingray sting, after walking on them... The "Crocodile Hunter" for example, but of course it wasn´t only one sting... http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/australiaandthepacific/australia/10687502/Crocodile-Hunter-Steve-Irwin-stabbed-hundreds-of-times-by-stingray-cameraman-reveals.html

Thank you for your visit and feedback @oldmariner!

I did not admit it but yes I have. Some readers might object to this treatment of those beautiful creatures. I taught diving in New Zealand for a while and we would even stage races.

Steve Irwin was a great guy but took chances beyond the reasonable.

Ok thank you for the information and I don´t mind if they are dangerous or not nevertheless, because I have my selfie stick. xD

Haha yes, I think so too! :-)
