Beautiful Vintage Stingray Spines

Set of 6

2"- 4.5" 


• The ray's flat body is designed to allow them to dig in and hide from predators on sandy sea bottoms. 

• Rays inhabit coastal waters including estuaries, lagoons and have been known to tolerate low salinity allowing them to flourish in freshwater rivers.

• There are approximately 70 species in the world.

• The serrated venomous tail spine is actually a "modified scale" known as "dermal denticles"

on sharks, rays and the teeth of a sword fish.

• The barb is a unique weapon as not only can it  "stick" an attacker but also can transmit a venom from its mucus coating.

• They sting only as a defense mechanism.

• Stingrays shed and replace their caudal tail spines...some on a yearly basis.


This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to have a graduated set of 6 specimen spines ranging from 2" to 4.5"
