BRISTOL, ENGLAND - JANUARY 20: A freshwater stingray pup looks out from a holding tank at Bristol Zoo's aquarium on January 20, 2012 in Bristol, England. The fish is one of nine ocellated freshwater stingray pups that were born last week after two new females were introduced to the Zoo’s male stingray last year. The babies - six females and three males, currently just 12cm (4.7 inches) long but will eventually grow to the size of a car tyre - have now been moved into a separate, off-show tank to keep them safe from larger predators in the display tank. In the coming months they will be re-homed, once they are bigger and stronger (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images)

Yikes… did you see what’s swimming around the beaches near Tarpon Springs….probably feet away from you, your kids or dogs?

I’ve swam in the beaches near Tarpon Springs.  I bring my dog up there and swim at a bunch of the islands near there…but I don’t know if I want to go in the water anymore…. Did you see what’s swimming in the water.

Yes, of course I know there are stingrays…but I didn’t know they could be this big!  Yikes!

The scuba divers saw this about 8 miles off Tarpon Springs last weekend.  It was resting on the floor of the Gulf!  They said it was about 10-12 feet long!!!!

The underwater video was shot by Howard Cohn who was diving with Narcosis Scuba Center’s Shawn Campbell.
