Q: What happened to Ray when he was caught by the giant squid?

A: He became X-Ray!



 The Pacific Manta Ray
           Scientific Name: Manta birosris
Status:  In fishing areas, there is a minimal amount of rays.  However,
                   in area where there is no fishing, the population is steady.
           Size: An adult male in this species can grow up to a width of 22 feet
                   and weigh up to 2800 pounds!
           Found in: Pelgic waters, but have been spotted near coral reefs
           Diet: Small fish, plankton, and squid
           Responce to Humans: These creatures actual enjoy human company; 
                   scientists believe that the manta rays likes the feeling of air
                   bubbles that divers give off.
Pacific electric ray  The Pacific Topedo Ray (aka Pacific Electric Ray)
           Scientific Name:Torpedo californica
           Status:  Not Endangered
           Size:  Up to 4 feet in length and up to 94 pounds
           Found in: Pelagic Waters, spanning for Baja, California to British
                  Columbia.Have been spotted also in kelp beds, sandy bottoms
                  and coral reefs.
           Diet:  Fish, such as kelp bass and herring, and invertibrates
           Responce to Humans:  The Pacific Torpedo Ray is rarely seen by
                  humans, which could be for several reasons, including that they
                  are afraid of them.  But it's a good thing that humans don't see
                  them that often; they are extremely dangerous to humans because
                  they give off at least 45 volts of electricity!
