Stingrays are normally docile animals. But one swimmer learned the hard way that even creatures that would rather take flight than fight can get angry and attack.
On the Gold Coast of Australia, YouTube video has surfaced of a swimmer diving aggressively toward a rather large ray.
The animal took off.
But as the man headed back to shore, the stingray decided to take its revenge and charged.
As 9News reports, the man dove again, but this time away from the ray and not toward it. He was able to escape injury.
