Coast's new stingray babies Cookies and Cream revealed

SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast's newest twins have been officially named.

After 1500 entries were received to name the stingray sisters, SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast have settled on a name for their dynamic duo: 'Cookies' and 'Cream'.

The two female rays were born on May 20, and now live in the ray nursery which they call home along with their 15 fellow tankmates.

 

SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast senior aquarist Amanda Reno said the two friendly rays have a strong bond.

"Cookies and Cream have a really strong sisterly bond... they are such posers and love having their photo taken," she said.

Competition entrant Natasha Cassidy with her children Zion Green, 6, and Ezekiel Green, 5, picked the winning names for the baby Black Blotched Fantail Rays.

The family visited the aquarium today to meet their new salty pals.

 

Reinforcing the dedication to SEA LIFE's mantra of Breed, Rescue and Protect, the rays will be raised on-site by SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast as part of the global brand's ray breeding and conservation initiatives.
