White-spotted Guitarfish

Recommended Posts

Ran into this guy yesterday on the GBR out of Cairns, he was sitting on the bottom at 27m. He was a big sucker, approx 3m long and had a Cobia keeping it company. Pics aren't the best but thought you might like to have a look, only seen one of these once before.

Seconded, very cool!

 

Also glad to see your large rays and the like are followed by cobia also, same here in our neck of the sea! Sometimes I see a small gang of cobia just pestering a large ray constantly, just to keep it swimming and stirring up any bottom critters the cobia might want to eat! :blink:

 

Yes, thanks for posting, our guitarfish just don't get quite that large. Amazing!

 

Best, Carol
