Incredible Animal-Human Bond in La Gomera, Canary Islands


Since the dawn of time, animals and humans have formed bonds. However, sometimes a bond is formed that is unlike any other. The boy in the video above has developed a friendship with a stingray and is able to pet it and feed it by hand.

There are several different types of stingrays, found in a variety of sizes and shapes. The species is divided into eight separate families. Stingrays are almost never aggressive, but their stinger is poisonous and will be used as a weapon if the ray feels threatened.
