Stingray!

folly beach island yoga stingray south carolina charleston

Check out this sizable stingray a fisherman pulled in on Folly Beach! Though not the largest stingray we’ve ever seen it definitely wasn’t small and put up quite a fight. Amazingly the fisherman seemed determined to get his hook back and fought the good fight before releasing this beautiful creature back to sea.

Did you know that the “stingray shuffle” could save you a painful and sometimes life threatening sting from one of these bad boys? The stingray doesn’t have any animosity toward humans but it is easily startled in the dark waters of the ocean and it will react defensively, sometimes stinging. To do the “stingray shuffle” you simply shuffle your feet where you’re standing in the ocean to kick up a bit of sand into the water. Stingrays can sense the disturbance and will typically move away from you.
