Artist's notes:

torpedo or pacific electric ray thumbThe Torpedo or Pacific Electric Ray was completed on 9.22.2011. I have begun diving in the cold waters of the Pacific Ocean. In my few dives, I have encountered many interesting marine animals. The Torpedo Ray is one I have yet to see, but am very hopeful that in a future dive I will encounter one of these rays. Although I'm told they can be aggressive, so when I do see one, I will try and keep my distance! The drawing is based on a photo by the talented underwater photographer Scott Gietler.

Information about the Torpedo or Pacific Electric Ray:

The Torpedo Ray - also called the Pacific Electric Ray - is a member of the family of Torpedinidae. They are native to the coastal waters of the northeastern Pacific Ocean from Baja California to as far north as British Columbia in Canada. They are not large rays, but can grow to about 4.5 feet in length (1.4 meters) They are found in kelp forests, rocky reefs and sandy bottoms down to a depth of around 600 feet (200 meters) These rays feed on small fish like anchovies, herring, and the like. They will also eat octopus and other cephalopods, as well as crustaceans. As the name implies, they are able to deliver a sizable electric shock, and because of this divers are advised to keep their distance, especially at night when the rays are feeding.
