Description

Myliobatis tenuicaudatus - nz eagle ray. Often see eagle rays in the shallows around Tiri. They are often found around the jetty which gives you a great view of them. They are often dug into the sand or mud but sometimes you see them swimming, which is amazing.
They eat things like oysters, worms and hermit crabs and in their turn are eaten by orca.
