Artist's Description

Just when you thought the prickly sensation of putting your hand down on a ‘crown of thorns’ toxic starfish was enough ~ lined up right next to it ~ is the venomous ‘barbed’ tail end of a blue spotted sting-ray! Crikey! Now that would be a pain in the backside!

Sadly as many will know, the famed Australian Zoologist Steve Irwin tragically lost his life whilst filming Stingrays. Steve swam over the top of the stingray and the stingray’s barb whipped up into his chest and put a hole into his heart!

It seems the general public ~ flared up by this ~ may have started revenging his death by culling more stingrays. “That’s the last thing Steve would want,” said Michael Hornby, a friend of Irwin.

Stingrays are being unsustainably fished for their meat in South East Asia ~ so they have much more to fear from us, than we do from them.

Ironically, it is well known that stingrays predate on benthic invertebrates and maybe their demise ~ is a contributing factor to the ‘increased numbers’ of the voracious ‘crown of thorns starfish’ ~ which decimates corals and is starting to spread across Asia!?
