“Boom,” an onlooker says during the live birth of a cownose ray caught on video in an aquarium at SeaWorld Orlando.
Friday, SeaWorld shared the video of the brief delivery on Facebook, which they said happened on Oct. 27 at the Manta aquarium.
A spokesperson for the theme park said it was one of several ray births in the last few months.
The short video was taken by one of SeaWorld’s aquarists, who park officials said help monitor the rays.
SeaWorld said cownose rays, which are cartilaginous fish and closely related to sharks, give birth to live young.
