Rare eagle rays born in Dutch zoo


This video is called Science in Action: Spotted Eagle Rays.

Dutch news agency ANP reports, that in Burgers’ Zoo in Arnhem two baby spotted eagle rays have been born.

According to the zoo, the young rays weigh 2.5 kilogram. They are the 20th and 21st individuals of this species born in this zoo. This makes Burgers’ Zoo the most succesful zoo in the world for reproduction of those fish. They are the only zoo in Europe where this happens, along with five non-European zoos.

Some of the rays, born in Arnhem, have since moved to other zoos.
