Friendships between people and animals have been coming for years and years, but sometimes we come to a friendship which is so unusual that you have to see with your own eyes to believe it. The boy in this video has built such a special friendship with a stingray. The two have so much fun together that it seems that the animal is so happy when he is getting stroked by the boy! Stingrays are rarely aggressive, but many species have a poisonous spine on their back that is most often used when the animal feels threatened.
This most often happens to people when they stand accidentally on a stingray. Here's a handy tip: if you walk into the sea and you know there are stingrays nearby, gently shimmy over the sand and they'll probably swim away.
