Beautiful Vintage Stingray Spines

Set of 2

5" to 5.25"


• 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 set of 2 specimen spines.

They will measure between 5" and 5.25".


You will receive barbs similar to photograph.


We have painstakingly measured and categorized thousands of barbs and offer a variety of assortments. 


These are a byproduct of the fishing industry in Bangladesh. Harvested in 1980.


• Professionally Cleaned

• Not Poisonous 

• Very Sharp
