News video: Stingray startled after encountering scuba diver

Southern Stingrays are found throughout the Caribbean and are a common sight for scuba divers.

They have a reputation as fearsome and deadly creatures because they are equipped with stingers or barbs in their long tails.

These sharp barbs are capable of delivering a severe wound and they are armed with a powerful toxin that can be deadly to most creatures, including humans.

But despite this, they are actually gentle and very shy creatures who only use their barbs for defense when attacked. .
