WOah BIggest Stingray found in Thailand!!!


"Ian Welch, a British biologist doing research in Thailand, hauled in a world record fresh water stingray with a rod and reel! The massive stingray weighed in at an estimated 771 pounds with a fin span of seven feet and an overall length of ten feet including the barbed tail. The weight is a best guess estimate due to the fact that the stingray was pregnant and they didn’t want to chance harming the stingray while weighing it.

The fresh water stingray was caught while the biologist was on tagging expedition on the Mae Klong in Samut Songkram province of Thailand. Research is being done by several teams of biologists on the fresh water stingrays found in Thailand.

It took over 90 minutes to bring the stingray up from the bottom and 13 men just to bring it aboard the boat and then to haul it ashore to study it. After the researchers completed their study of the stingray the mammoth was released unharmed back into the Mae Klong."
