White-Blotched River Stingray

New Arrivals

July 01, 2021

Lincoln Park Zoo is excited to announce the arrival of two male white-blotched river stingrays at Regenstein Small Mammal-Reptile House! The siblings arrived from the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay as recommended by the White-Blotched River Stingray Species Survival Plan® (SSP).

The stingrays are doing well and can be spotted exploring their new habitat.

The white-blotched river stingray has a polka dot appearance that helps it cryptically blend in with the sun-dappled river bottom of the waterways it inhabits in the Amazon Basin.
