jumping rays in gulf of mexico
ive deduced from internet articles,(behavior, mannerisms, mating, species) you tube videos,asking fishermen and own acct. that rays jump for a number of reasons, primarly (sp)? to escape a predator. there was a death on the gulf (attributed to a ray jumping out of the water and hitting a lady on the neck who was sun bathing on a boat) as recent as 2008.
I suppose one takes their own calculated risk when entering the wilds of the water.
