A friendship comes along that is so unusual you just have to see it to believe it. The kid in this video has made special connection, a close friendship with a stingray that it seems to enjoy letting him feed it.
Stingrays come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, making up the eight families of stingray species. The largest species is the manta ray, which is part of the eagle ray family. They can be over 20 feet wide and weigh close to 3,000 pounds!
Watch this young boy befriends a stingray, and actually pets and feeds the stingray right out of his hand! I could not believe my eyes as I watched this unusual phenomenon — my jaw literally dropped. Although most stingrays are not aggressive, the massive size of this stingray makes this odd friendship even more amazing to see. I’m sure that little boy will hold on to this memory forever!
