Husbandry

Last, White & Puckridge, 2010

Very special thanks for the first photo of Neotrygon ningalooensis to Dr. Kirk R. Gastrich, he has take this photo in the Red Cliff Bay, Shark Bay, Western Australia; 4th of November, 2008.

The Nigaloo maskray lifees endemic to northwestern Australia!

The Ningaloo Maskray is a shallow water demersal species inhabiting bottoms with soft sediments adjacent to reef areas. Depth range appears to be very narrow (<5 m) based on the records known to date.
The species can hide burying itself into bottom sediments. Its protrusible eyes can give the Ningaloo Maskray a selective advantage relative to other similar species, as they allow the species to bury deeper than congeners, and thus to observe its surroundings, be camouflaged, and avoid predators more effectively than other species.
Maximum known size is 30.2 cm disc width.
