In the old fishing harbor of Vueltas located on La Gomera, an island in the Canary Islands, sting rays, eagle rays and Butterfly rays regularly come to visit the port.

Over the centuries, fishermen in the harbor have thrown their bycatch into the port by the landing stairs, which has lead to the rays foraging there. In this video, a boy named Joel, befriends a very large sting ray who swims right up to the stairs and lets him pet him, while getting a snack!
