Range: Bat rays move into open coastal waters as water temperatures drop below 50 degrees F and head for warmer water. They are often seen schooling with smoothhound sharks and leopard sharks as they travel.
Predators: Bat rays are eaten by Great White Sharks, Seven gill sharks, and occasionally by sea lions and humans.
Stay tuned for our next blog about creatures we have been seeing while on the water, leopard sharks.
