A Fever hits the beaches in Florida


Recommended Posts

Did you know a group of stingrays is called a fever?

 

Notice how they merely swim around those in the water.

Neat the way they detoured around people.

(I guess they didn't care for the urine in the water??)

 

The stingrays, around Florida, are generally docile creatures that avoid humans if possible. The vast majority of people are stung (hit with the tail barb) by stepping on them while they are buried in the sand, especially during mating season.

 

BTW: Pissing on the wound doesn't help and is pure folklore.

Long ago... one musta missed that detour around Steve Irwin.
