FACE OFF ... It's rare that I get a #FlatSharkFriday in the field and today did not disappoint! ... Today marked the end of our first week of fieldwork (out of four!) tagging smooth stingrays and southern eagle rays for my research and we had such a great day 😍 not only was it #VolunteerOfTheWeek @alys_luongo's birthday, but mother nature was on her side and gave us three smooth stingrays to tag, including a male, which is only the 3rd male we've seen in 4 years! But that's not all... we also had a visit from a big, beautiful eagle 🦅 ray hosting a remora, and we finished off the day with a surprise visit from a bluntnose sevengill shark 🦈😍 ... This video is our first tagged ray coming face to face with the sevengill. What a day! ... #friyay #StingrayDiaries #stingrayscience #raysmattertoo #RaysAwareness #RaysForDays #rays4days #hooray4rays #HoorayForRays #stingray #ray #RaysNearMe #batoidea #batoids #battyforbatoids #lifeofamarinebiologist #womendoingscience #womentransformingscience #shecanstem #realwomeninstem #ScienceIsForEveryone #sciencecommunication #scicomm

先日、恒例となりました 『現場のおばちゃん達のわがままを笑顔でたんと聞いてあげて且つ優しく慰労し明日からまた頑張って働いて頂く』 ことを目的とした 《社内日帰りバス旅行》という名の 苦行に行って参りました。 今年は 出石そばを皆で楽しく食して (という雰囲気づくり) か~ら~の 城崎マリンワールド。 ワシ的にかなりしんどい思いをした 前回・前々回のことを思えば (過去post参照) これはなかなか良いルート だったと思われる。 なんたってほぼ室内だし(これ大事) 空調快適で涼しいし(これ大事) たいして歩かんでいいし(これ大事) 来年も同じコースで良いぞよ(何様) そして ワシ的一大事 「エイの裏が好きすぎる事案」発生。 初めて生(?)で見たけど ただただもう かわゆす(涙) 大勢の子供たちに混じって 大水槽にへばりついて 同僚の「行きますよーー」の声も 耳に入らんくらい 長時間見入った挙げ句 館内ショップに突進し ぬいぐるみコーナーのエイを ピンポイントでひっ掴むBBA(ワシ) かわゆす。 #エイ #エイ裏 #水族館 #batoidea #ray #aquarium #城崎マリンワールド #城崎 #兵庫 #山陰 #鳥取

《モルディブ⑤》エイの餌付け Feeding fish モルディブでは各リゾートでエイや魚たちの餌付けをしている所か多いらしい🙃 餌の時間になると、続々と集まってくる魚たち。時間分かるのかな? ほとんど素早い黒い魚に取られてしまうため、エイたちはお兄さんが直接餌をあげていて、その姿が何とも可愛らしい😆 4つ目と5つ目の動画は、砂浜と海の境でエイ達が波にもみくちゃにされている所が見所です笑 最後は珍しい大きなウツボがやって来て、特別手当を受け取っていました(笑)野生の魚達の餌付け、珍しくて面白かった。 #maldives #maldive #villas #blueocean #vacation #vacances #honeymoon #jumeirahvittaveli #resort #asiaresort #batoidea #wildfish #fishfeeding #モルディブ #インド洋 #バカンス #海 #水上ヴィラ #水上コテージ #モルディブハネムーン #ハネムーン #リゾート #アジアリゾート #エイ #野生の水族館

Pancakes and post-it notes for #FlatSharkFriday⁠ ...⁠ And by that, I mean smooth stingrays and southern eagle rays 😄⁠ ...⁠ On Sunday I am heading to Jervis Bay on the south coast of NSW with a band of amazing volunteers for a whole month to see these beauties again, and to tag and track them! Prepare yourselves for some serious ray-spam. ⁠ ...⁠ This field season is particularly exciting for three reasons:⁠ 1️⃣ I have expanded my research and will be tagging more animals! Last year I tagged 15 smooth stingrays. This year I will be tagging a few more than this, as well as tagging southern eagle rays for the first time! We see eagle rays and smooth stingrays foraging together at boat ramps all the time, so we're hoping to compare their use of these areas. I have a sneaking suspicion than the eagle rays use the areas even more than their smooth cousins 😏⁠ 2️⃣ I have a masters student @alys_luongo coming along with me to run her very own study using underwater video to track the movements of eagle rays!⁠ 3️⃣and last, but certainly not least, it is my last major field season of my PhD 😢 I still have a bit of fieldwork left to do but this will be the last month-long trip. I have been making these trips every year since 2016. I won't know what to do with myself this time next year, but I'll probably be too busy frantically writing my chapters to even notice, to be honest 😅⁠ ...⁠ Wish us luck, and check my story updates over the month☝️⁠ ...⁠ #friyay #StingrayDiaries #stingrayscience #raysmattertoo #RaysAwareness #RaysForDays #rays4days #hooray4rays #HoorayForRays #stingray #ray #RaysNearMe #batoidea #batoids #battyforbatoids #lifeofamarinebiologist #womendoingscience #womentransformingscience #shecanstem #realwomeninstem #ScienceIsForEveryone #sciencecommunication #scicomm ⁠

朝練は7時スタート。 2時間で1バラシのみ。 色々試して取り出したのはPB-24。 投げたらフォール中にガツッと反応がありグググっと引きが。 ドラグ出て大物かと思いきや… オレ、ワカル、タブン、アイツ… ツバクロエイ(?)と格闘。 何度も潜られながら堤防をぐるりとまわり岩場の平たいとこへ着地。 無事、PB-24を外して優雅に泳いでいきました。 動画撮ってる時は凧揚げしてる気分でした。タモをルアーにかけて外そうとしましたがダメ…腕がなかった… 練習したいけど、エイはこりごりだなあ。 #batoidea #rays

#FlatSharks vs #FlattenedSharks ... This week I got to spend some time backstage at Sydney SeaLife Aquarium to see some of the work they do with their smooth stingrays and ocellate eagle rays. But I have to say, one of my highlights was seeing this big girl. 😍 ... She has dorsal fins like a shark and a shark-like tail, but she's flattened like a ray. So, is she a shark 🦈 or a ray 🍳? 🤔 (yes I know that's a fried egg but I gotta work with what I'm given, OK 😂) ... She is a shark ray. Nope, that's not a typo. Shark rays (Rhino ancylostoma) are also known as bowmouth guitarfish because they're mouths are W-shaped and they're kind of guitar shaped 🎸 ... While shark rays are rays, there are some species of shark that look like rays but are actually sharks! (not confusing at all...). So how do you tell the difference between a flattened shark and a flatshark? Look for the gills! 👀 The gills of flatsharks (rays), like shark rays, are found underneath the body. The gills of flattened sharks, like angel sharks, are found either side of the head, behind the eyes! #themoreyouknow🌈 ... #friyay #StingrayDiaries #stingrayscience #raysmattertoo #RaysAwareness #RaysForDays #rays4days #hooray4rays #HoorayForRays #stingray #ray #RaysNearMe #batoidea #batoids #battyforbatoids #lifeofamarinebiologist #womendoingscience #womentransformingscience #shecanstem #realwomeninstem #ScienceIsForEveryone #sciencecommunication #scicomm

Heeeere, fishy fishy fishy 🐟 or, err, stingray, stingray, stingray [insert ray emoji here]⁠ ... People think fish are stupid. But (spoiler alert) they're not. Half of the 60,000+ known vertebrate species are fish. They're hella diverse and have been swimming our oceans for over 500 million years. They clearly must have some shred of intelligence to be about to learn and adapt and become such a prolific group.⁠ ...⁠ It's well known that fish form schools and these schools take a lot of brainpower to build and maintain over time. Social behaviour, like schooling and shoaling, requires 'intelligence', such as the ability to recognise others, maintaining your social rank in the group, and to respond to social cues like aggression and submission. In 2016, I did a short study on the social abilities of my rays. The rays were aggregating over discarded fish scraps and it appeared the rays had certain relationships, where some would forage with others but would leave when a more aggressive individual arrived. Turns out this was the case and the rays showed a strong size-based social structure with the bigger females being the most dominant and most important in the social group. This size based social structure is often seen in sharks and rays. And many species of sharks and rays have complex social relationships. Far from the mindless killing machines the media portrays this group as. ... Happy #FlatSharkFriday! ... #friyay #StingrayDiaries #stingrayscience #raysmattertoo #RaysAwareness #RaysForDays #rays4days #hooray4rays #HoorayForRays #stingray #ray #RaysNearMe #batoidea #batoids #battyforbatoids #lifeofamarinebiologist #womendoingscience #womentransformingscience #shecanstem #realwomeninstem #ScienceIsForEveryone #sciencecommunication #scicomm

Happy #MantaMonday! ... I'm currently cooped up in bed nursing a filthy head cold, reminiscing about this incredible day at Nusa Penida. It was a bucket list moment - the first time I'd seen #mantarays in the wild. This beautiful girl is a reef manta ray (Mobula alfredi). They're the second largest species of ray in the world, second only to the oceanic manta ray (Mobula birostris). Reef manta grow to 5.5m across while oceanic mantas can get to 7m! ... Unfortunately, Both reef and oceanic manta rays are vulnerable to extinction, due primarily to overfishing. They're often caught as bycatch but are also targeted for their gill rakers. This targeted fishing has increased in recent years with the increasing price of their gill rakers for Chinese medicine. The use of manta ray gill rakers in medicine has no scientific backing. As with many ray and shark species, their recovery from such threats is hindered by their slow growth and low reproductive rate. ... This girl is swimming around what's known as a 'cleaning station'. Here, little fish like cleaner wrasse pick off parasites to keep them healthy. Manta rays are also highly social and these cleaning stations are important locations for social interactions. Research out of our lab @thefishlabmq is showing that manta rays may communicate by folding and unfolding their cephalic lobes (the lobes on either side of their head). You can see this girl has her cephalic lobes unfurled in this video and then she quickly closes them as she moves along. ... #themoreyouknow #StingrayDiaries #stingrayscience #raysmattertoo #RaysAwareness #RaysForDays #rays4days #hooray4rays #HoorayForRays #stingray #ray #RaysNearMe #batoidea #batoids #battyforbatoids #lifeofamarinebiologist #science #research #sciencing #fieldwork #womendoingscience #womentransformingscience #shecanstem #realwomeninstem #ScienceIsForEveryone #scicomm #sciencecommunication

A pesar de ser uno de los peces más hermosos del mundo, tristemente, las poblaciones de mantarrayas como de muchos animales, ha estado en decaimiento por diversas razones (principalmente, por causas humanas), como su caza de manera ilegal por obtener sus rastrillos branquiales usado como ingrediente en la medicina en China, o porque a veces los barcos pesqueros llevan en sus redes de manera "accidental" a muchas mantarrayas. Actualmente se sabe que dicho organismo puede causar un mayor ingreso para las personas estando viva que muerta, debido a que incrementa el turismo beneficiando a hoteleros y compañías turísticas. . #condrictios #elasmobranquios #batoidea #rajiformes #mantarrayas #mantarraya #loscabos #loscabosmexico #bajacaliforniasur #mexicodesconocido #mexico_amazing #mexico #mexicomaravilloso #mexico_fotos #mexico🇲🇽 #faunamexicana #faunasilvestre #fauna #faunademexico #canon #canon📷 #canont5i #t5icanon #t5i #t5irebel

A wild sea pancake spotted in her natural habitat.⁠ ...⁠ Common stingarees are the most abundant inshore ray species on the eastern coast of Australia. Indeed, they're the rays I see most underwater. Despite this, the species has seen a suspected 20-30% population decline over the last 30 years, due to their range overlapping with those of estuarine, inshore and continental shelf trawl fisheries. The rays aren't a target of these fisheries but they're usually caught as by-catch and discarded. However, their survival following this 'catch and release' is very low. On top of that, their reproductive output is also low, as is the case with many sharks and rays, and so their recovery from this decline is hindered. As a result, they are considered Near Threatened on the #IUCNRedList.⁠ ...⁠ It's not all bad news though. Marine parks, like the Fly Point Aquatic Reserve that I saw this girl in, are providing safe havens for this species and many others. There has also been a reduction in fishing efforts in parts of their range, which could help see their recovery.⁠ ...⁠ Happy #FlatSharkFriday!⁠ . . . . . . . . #TheMoreYouKnow #friyay #StingrayDiaries #stingrayscience #raysmattertoo #RaysAwareness #RaysForDays #rays4days #hooray4rays #HoorayForRays #stingray #ray #RaysNearMe #batoidea #batoids #battyforbatoids #lifeofamarinebiologist #womendoingscience #womentransformingscience #shecanstem #realwomeninstem #ScienceIsForEveryone #sciencecommunication #scicomm ⁠

馬來西亞特產-貓山王榴槤,味道跟泰國金枕頭真的很不同,其中多了份苦味,聽當地人說他們更喜歡會有先苦後甘的榴槤,因為這象徵著人的一生,沒想到一個榴槤也能這麼有哲理啊⋯ 另外在大排檔吃到了魔鬼魚,肉質還不錯呢,沒想到下午才在水族館看到你,晚上你就出現在桌上了🤫 然後這個國家的啤酒真的特別貴,一瓶啤酒可以喝四顆椰子了😂 #durian #philosophy #foody #batoidea
