This white frame contains some old scientific drawings of a spotted ray (raja montagui) including a real empty egg.
The diamond-shaped spotted ray is one of the smallest skate species. It has a varied diet, eating crustaceans, worms and fish. The young often live in shallow areas near the coastline, known as nursery grounds, but adults are typically found further offshore.
Spotted rays are able to reproduce more quickly than some of the other skates, making them less vulnerable to overfishing.
Although it is commonly called the spotted ray, it is actually a species of skate (sometimes known as the spotted skate). Skates and rays are closely related and look similar, but you can spot the difference by looking at the tail. Skates have a short tail with small fins and no stinging capabilities, whereas rays have a long whip-like tail.
100% guarantee that no animals where harmed specifically for the creation of this frame.
