Kid feeding and petting a wild manta ray
This is a pretty unusual sight. The young boy in the video below has created a very strange friend. He is feeding and petting (really patting) a large stingray which seems to enjoy letting him pet it and even eats out of his hand. At times the boy does seem uncomfortable and backs away as the manta ray comes closer but overall he enjoys the interaction. The kid is much braver than me. Manta rays are known for their large size and this is a big boy as you can see when it approaches the steps.
