Stingray Barb

How do they keep stingrays from stinging people at those stingray petting things on cruise excursions?

I mean like on cruise excursions, they have those places where you get to pet and feed stingrays in the wild. This will be my first time going and I was just wondering. I'm kind of nervous. I was wondering if they remove the stingray barbs or something. please help!

Stingrays dont go around stinging people. They do have the barb on them still (they are in the wild), but they just tell you where you can touch them, and what to watch out for. Basically leave their tails alone, and only touch their sides. The biggest thing they tell you is, if you are feeding them, how to hold the squid, and do not touch someone else (or yourself) after feeding them. You still have the squid scent on your hands, and that is how they find the food, so if they smell it on you they will come up to you and suck where you touched. In the Caymans, they called it a Cayman hickey if they do that to you.

I did the stingray thing once and was a little nervous too, but it was really cool, and would do it again. Not to worry too much though, nobody in my group got a hickey, or stung.
