Husbandry

Hildebrand & Schroeder, 1928

Dasyatis americana, also known as southern stingray or whip stingray, occurs in tropical and subtropical waters of the southern Atlantic Ocean, as well as the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. It is most abundant near the coast of Florida and the Bahamas.

Like the most other rays, the southern stingray prefers shallow coastal or estuarine habitats with sandy or silty bottoms. As a ground-fish he avoids rugged and rocky structures such as reefs, because the hunt there is much more serious. Rays are usually solitary, rarely they are found in pairs or in larger groups. As Dasyatis americana is frequently found in estuaries, he also comes with the often over 32 ° C high temperature cope quite well.

Feeding constantly during the day and night, southern stingray feeds on large epibenthic prey such as teleosts and crustaceans. Other prey include stomatopods, mollusks, and annelids.
