Hundreds of bat rays filmed from the air
In a video filmed using a drone shows a formation of rays off the coast of Australia.
The beautiful footage filmed Thursday shows hundreds of bat rays swimming in the crystal clear waters of Bondi Beach, reports Reuters.
The images were filmed by the company DRONE SHARK APP , specialized in taking pictures from the top of the sky.
The bat ray, in English “cownoseray”, has a fold in the middle of the muzzle dividing it into two lobes, a little like the muzzle of a cow.
These rays move and hunt in the seabed, but can leap out of the water, especially to flee a predator.
They circulate by flapping their wings, a bit like a bird, or a bat.

16/05/19 A school of #cownoseray cruising past #bondibeach early this morning. Well spotted Jotty ?We haven’t seen this before ?? so it’s a first for #dronesharkapp. Two species of cownose Ray can be found in #australianwaters. Apparently they don’t come down as far as this so I’m assuming it’s the warmer water we have had recently. All our other action from this morning coming up.?. #stingray #marinelife #sealifeaquarium #sealifeaustralia #lovesealife #lovemarinelife #bondiaustralia #bondibeachaustralia #australiansealife #bondilife #dawnpatrol #dronephotographer #dronepilot
