Stingray Bites

Earlier stingrays (Dasyatis) have caused on the coasts of North America about 750 stitches per year. Today’s incidence is unknown. The venom of the stingray is located in one or more spines on the upper surface of the long tail of the fish. A breach it usually comes when unwary bather wading through the surf by a bay or a lagoon step on the stingrays. The so provoked stingrays beats its tail forward and up and drives in this way his spikes in the foot or leg of the patient. The skin covering the spine breaks it up, and the poison penetrates into the tissue.
