On Thursday morning ZooTampa officials stumbled upon a very sad scene. The touch tank stingrays were found dead.
This is a big mystery for zookeepers and they have launched an investigation into what may have caused the dead stingrays.
There were 12 stingrays residing in the touch tank, called Stingray Bay.
According to a Facebook Post from ZooTampa:
“The animal care and veterinary teams are examining all of the mechanical equipment involved and testing the water, all of which indicate optimal water quality and conditions. It may take several weeks for all of the test results to come in. Stingray Bay is a closed system that’s home only to the rays. It remains closed at this time.”
