BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Visitors at Port Canaveral caught a glimpse of a Spotted Eagle Ray swimming around the Freddie Boat Ramp on Monday.
The Spotted Eagle Rays usually live along the open coast in warmer waters. They tend to live around coral reefs and will enter protected bays to feed or mate.
They can grow up to nearly 11 feet wide and are considered one of the largest rays in the world.
Spotted eagle rays mainly eat crabs, mollusks, crustaceans, shrimp, octopuses and some small fish.
