Image Gallery: Rays
When people think of 'rays' they are generally thinking of stingrays. These fishes (family Dasyatidae) have long, slender, whip-like tails. There are, however, rays with leaf-like tails (family Urolophidae) and others with short, spiny tails (Rajidae) as well as other families that look different again. Rays are a surprisingly varied group.
