Australian cownose ray

The Australian cownose ray lives in the reef-associated, marine environment.

The Australian Cownose Ray can be easily recognised by its unusual bi-lobed head. Under the snout are two large fleshy lobes. These are often mistaken as the entrance to the mouth. The mouth however, is on the ventral surface (underneath) the fish. More
