The sting rays stinger does grow back ;)
Sting rays are very dangerous though if you step on them in the wild, that's why I was taught to shuffle my feet through the sand as you walk out.

Yeah, but I have never seen one in the wild.

Wow breath taking, sounds really cool ^^
I believe in freedom, and peace. But sometimes, you don't always get what you want. Don't believe lies, don't trust strangers who out of the blue talk to you, and beware of scams such as the 2012 lie. YOUR choices shape YOUR future.

I know that, I was talking about their actual tails. A few of the sting rays were missing around two-thirds or more of their tails because people have somehow managed to break them off :(
=========
Well, I dont think they care too much.. They are just little cuts.. They are lucky, in the wild it could be much worse... And often, they have their stingers cut off when entering an aquarium to protect those who do touch the rays.
I know that matters could be far worse for this species in the wild, but those little cuts could possibly cause drastic problems for sting rays. I hope I don't sound like a "germaphobic", but do you know how many germs adults and their kids could transfer into the water tanks? If someone were to scratch or cut a stingray, those germs could be transfered to the sting rays, I believe. Did you know that a few years ago at one zoo, 41 out of their 43 stingrays died from a possible toxin in the water? 34 of which died overnight... I don't know what the official water test results were, but if was most likely due to a certain toxin that someone accidentally transfered into the aquarium.

But I don't want to sound like I'm arguing, though, so I'll stop xD It's just for a future reference or thought, so to speak!

I am going to have to disagree with you. The stingrays were brought in, raised, and have been handled by humans, so I doubt a scratch could really harm them. Also, their water is constantly being filtered so even if bacteria does enter the water, there is a slim chance that they would get seriously infected..

I understand that, but I meant, how do you train deadly poisonous exotic fish to have a performance? and what kind of performance exactly?

You're thinking of a Lionfish; this is a Sea Lion we're talking about^^
