Annual Migration of Golden or Cow Nose Rays

Two metres across, the Golden or Cow Nose rays circularly migrate: western Florida and the Yucatan Peninsular, Mexico. In schools of up to 10,000.

These images were taken by Sandra Critelli, an amateur photographer.


  1. Too cool for words.

    Alan down in Florida

  2. hey again, yep, there are a squillion animal photos out there, but not so many great ones - a bit like blokes!!! (i'm still chuckling at myself - how cheap! how trite!!)

  3. Amazing eh! Too bad they'll probably migrate to a dead zone. ha jk, love the pics.

  4. hey rye, probably heading directly for the the Bermuda Triangle, never to be seen again! but the photos are really magic. nick

  5. That first pic looked like a bunch of kites flying (in the air of course). Never did hear about any golden or cow-nosed rays before and never knew that they even migrated!! lol
    Interesting post, Nick!

  6. it's my first golden cow nose experience too! and i've been getting into the swimming pool with a bit more caution since !
