Info

Ein demersaler Fisch, der an der Küste bis zum mittelkontinentalen und insularen Schelf angetroffen wird, der Stechrochen kommt über und neben Fels- und Korallenriffen in flachem Wasser bis zu einer Tiefe von mindestens 91 Meter vor.

Neotrygon australiae ist ein rotbrauner bis grünlicher Stachelrochen mit blauen Flecken und verstreuten schwarzen Flecken auf der Körperscheibe, er zeigt eine dunkle "Maske" durch die Augen und einen sehr langen Schwanz mit schwarzen und weißen Streifen auf der Rückseite.
Stachelrochen dieser Gattung haben zwei giftige Stacheln am Schwanz, die extrem schmerzhafte Wunden verursachen können!

Gerne liegen die Rochen im Sand eingegraben, wobei nur noch ihre Augen und ihr Schwanz sichtbar sind.

Neotrygon australiae wurde in der Vergangenheit oft als Neotrygon kuhlii und als Dasyatis kuhlii bezeichnet.


Attention:
People have already died from stings by stingrays, including the well-known Australian documentary filmmaker, adventurer and zoo director of the Australian Zoo, Steve Irwin "The Crocodile Hunter" from Australia in 2006.

Even if the sting injuries are not fatal, the sting causes extremely painful and deep wounds in any case, and there is also the danger that parts of the sting will break off in the wound and a subsequent operation will be necessary.
The situation becomes particularly dramatic if poisons enter the body via the sting.

In any case, a doctor should be consulted immediately or immediate transport to the nearest hospital should be arranged.
