Feel the wonder and underwater grace of stingrays in a hands-on experience at Shedd Aquarium, Stingray Touch. Located under a tented structure on the aquarium's south terrace, the 18,000-gallon pool features cownose rays (Rhinoptera bonasus) and yellow rays (Urobatis jamaicensis). Guests will have exceptional views of the rays' natural behaviors across the 80-foot-long and 22-foot-wide habitat.
Fun fact: The diamond-shaped cownose ray glides through the water with a wingspan of up to 3 feet long.
