#stingrayshuffle

String rays are weird sea creatures- they have the cutest faces though. It's those faces that make them weird to me. Its summer in SWFL, which means it's "sting ray season". From April to October, predominantly the hotter summer months, the sting rays enjoy hanging out 3-10ft from the shore b/c it's cozy and warm. AND they hide in the sand to stay away from being eaten by sharks and larger rays- which means you can't just walk and frolic into the Gulf. You gotta shuffle, aka "the stingray shuffle". This sends vibrations down into the sandy floor of the Gulf that scare them away. If stung on your foot (ankle, leg, hand, arm, etc) immerse the extremity in the warmest/hottest fresh water you can stand to alleviate the pain. If bleeding, apply pressure (if uncontrollable, call 911). Don't attempt to pull out the barb. Clean wound with soap n water. Head to a clinic or ER to be evaluated, have an x-ray, have the barb removed, receive tetanus shot if you need one, and have the wound closed (if necessary). #happystingrays #stingrays #stingrayface #stingrayshuffle #swflorida #swfl #watersafety #summertime #gulfofmexico #watersafety #envenomation

The paparazzi (my sister) used their zoom lenses (her iPhone) to catch us canoodling (I asked my sister to take a photo and posed). Missing Southern California weather, beaches and my sister! #fbf #justaweekago #sealbeach #stingrayshuffle πŸ“·: @m_deguia

Watch where you're swimming Wrightsvillers! The stingrays are out in full force. Was going through some footage from a few weeks ago and thought a video PSA would be appropriate. #stingrayshuffle #WrightsvilleBeach #figureeightisland

Grabbed from the surf by a gull, this #stingray is the reason people get stung on our beaches. #stingrayshuffle #tistheseason #roundray #roundstingray #urolophushalleri

This legit happened to me once in Florida at my Moms. I was boogie boarding and not paying attention and when I stood up to get out of the water I was like, what the fuck? I was literally about a quarter mile down the beach. Lol. I thought they left me and shit. Haha #stingrayshuffle #ocean #florida #clearwater #largo #boogieboarding #payattention
