Fallen “Tigress”

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

 

Today, TopStingray mourns the death of a close friend…

 

She was always there when we needed her to be there.

 

Always hungry…

 

Always BIG…

 

We saw how she grew up and turned from a helpless baby into a full fledge adult…

 

Today morning, when we came to the office. We did our usual routine checks and to our horror!

 

She was dead…

 

To find out what happened, we investigated and suspect the cause of death to be abusive mating behavior from the male.

 

We know many experts would agree with us that during mating, tiger stingrays are very very aggressive but what we did not expect was that it happened overnight!

 

This was a monitoring mistake on our part and we strongly urge all you stingray lovers out there that whoever is keeping tiger rays to be really careful.

 

 

This is truly one of the saddest days in TopStingray history.

 

Rest in Peace dear friend.

 

 

Regards

TopStingray Team
