yup It must be a short tail.. the species are easily confused..all the big rays like the one I caught and targeted for quite a while were called eagle rays all over the north.Even the journalist called it an eagle Ray..and he was the local fishing correspondent!!.but looking at the species on the net they far easily fit that criteria..The demise of other fish species that target crabs etc..in the northern area led to a huge over population of the big rays for several years..and of course they are the main prey of orca up there..and theres less and less orca now… :grin:
