Huge Stingray tries to eat a fish bigger than its mouth

Stingrays are, according to Wikipedia...
Flat-bodied, and, like sharks, are cartilaginous marine fish, meaning they have a boneless skeleton made of a tough, elastic substance. The eyes and spiracles are located on top of the head. They have a ventrally located mouth and can considerably protrude their upper jaw away from the cranium to capture prey.

They can be found in the waters surrounding the Cayman Islands, in the Caribbean island of Antigua, in Belize, and Tahitian islands. Some can also be found in aquariums - like the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California.

And sometime, during your visit, you can even spot them feeding.

In the video below, the patrons of the said aquarium caught on video a stingray struggling to eat a fish a tad too big for its mouth. The fish was trapped in between the stingray and the huge aquarium's glass, giving those who were watching a good view of the struggle this stingray was having in its quest to eat the fish.

You could even hear the visitors commenting on what they were seeing, with more than one people concluding the fish would get eaten. But will it really be?

Check out the video and see whether the stingray was successful in eating the fish or not!
