A palm-sized baby ray in its ‘Kindergarten Aquarium’ at AquaDom & Sea Life in Berlin, Germany. Five little two and three-month-old undulate rays, born in Sea Life Koenigswinter, are now being raised with young cat sharks in the ‘Kindergarten Aquarium’ until they can move into the large undulate ray tank. The slots above the mouth that look like eyes are gills on the animal’s underbelly.
