The leopard ray has a characteristic shape in diamond, with dark gray blue color, speckled with white points on the back, with a white stomach. This fish can reach large-scale 3 meters and weigh up to 230 kg. Its head, very flattened, is a little similar to a beak of duck. Its mouth is equipped with strong teeth in plates which allow hit to crush easily shells. It uses its flattened head to search the sand by using his sense organs, similar to those of the sharks, to locate her preys. Its very long tail contain six venomous stings at its base; the sting can very be mortal for a man.
