More Fun Facts

The fins generally are held close to its body unless it feels under attack, resulting in a wide wing span creating terror in its predators. Colors range from the different locations when encountered, along with its spikes on the end of their pectoral fins. Although it uses its pectoral fins to scare, it actually uses its pelvic fins to walk along the bottom of the ocean seabeds.
