The Stingray Shuffle: No, It's Not the New Dance Craze

Watch out of stingrays!

They are relaxed animals and they only sting you out of self defense. So if you see a group of stingrays, also known as a fever, make sure to give them some space or do the stingray shuffle.

Yes, the stingray shuffle is a thing. It’s the action of shuffling your feet through the sand forward and backward or side to side. The vibrations give the stingrays a warning that you’re nearby so they can move out of the way.

They will stay away if they know someone is nearby.

Stay safe as stingray season comes in full force!
