Stingray Loves When Aquarium Visitors Squeal And Recoil After Touching It

NEWPORT, OR—Saying there’s nothing better than watching people “totally freak out,” a stingray at the Oregon Coast Aquarium confirmed Friday that it loves when visitors squeal and recoil in horror after touching it. “Oh man, it’s so great when some terrified-looking kid hesitates for a while before finally putting their hand under the water—you just know they’re going to completely lose their shit,” said the cartilaginous fish, describing how it can barely contain its excitement when aquarium patrons immediately pull back their hand upon making contact with its skin, emit a shrill screech, and bolt back several steps from the tank with a disgusted look on their face. “It’s especially great when they yell out stuff like ‘weird,’ ‘gross,’ or ‘ugh, it moved’ as they jump away.
