Devil rays in Murcielago, Costa Rica


Today’s Video of the Day comes from the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center and features a look at devil rays in Murcielago, Costa Rica.

The footage was captured by marine ecologist Emmett Duffy and his team of biologists in an effort to track biodiversity in various coastal ecosystems.

Devil rays have dazzled divers for years due to their unique look and remarkable swimming ability. In fact, they are some of the deepest and fastest divers in the ocean, thanks to three pairs of limbs that include pectoral fins, pelvic fins, and cephalic fins.
