Most people know the ray – the slightly strange looking and flat fish. The stingray may be the most famous type but there are others; panrays, thornbacks, eagle rays and even butterfly rays.
This video shows a type of devil ray – part of the eagle ray or mobula genus. These particular devil rays try to fly and we’re not entirely sure why this is the case.
This video, narrated by Doctor Who’s David Tennant, shows a teaser on these flying devil rays as part of a promotion the BBC’s Earthflight program.
