They Possess Venom
We all recall the tragic incident in which Steve Irwin, a well-known television personality and conservationist, was tragically punctured in the heart by a stingray in 2006. The sting of a stingray typically results in excruciating pain and a high risk of infection at the wound site. Stingrays have long, thin tails with one to three venomous barbs attached. The majority of stingray injuries in the United States, between 1,500 and 2,000 per year, involve the legs or feet, according to the National Capital Poison Control Center.
