Circular Stingaree

The Circular Stingaree is fairly rare in the Waters off Perth and I was lucky to find this one, my first, amongst the rocks under the reef at Coral Gardens, a dive site off Mindarie Marina, a few kilometers to the north of Perth. The pattern of spots on this fish are what make it easy to identify and it has a venomous barb on the top surface of its tail.

  1. Well spotted Bill, it must be quite a buzz when you capture one of the rarer underwater creatures.
