Product Description

TWO STINGRAY BARBED SPINE SPEARS FROM THE SEA
THESE ARE TWO 5.75" STINGRAY BARBED SPINE SPEARS. THEY ARE CLEANED AND OF A SPECIE NOT ENDANGERED OR PROTECTED. THEY WERE COLLECTED IN THE BAY OF BENGAL IN BANGLADESH. WHILE NOT OLD, THEY ARE COLLECTABLES AS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THE UTILIZATION OF WEAPONS AVAILABLE IN NATURE USED BY THE INDIANS ALL OVER THE WORLD LIVING AROUND THE WARM COASTAL WATERS OF THE SEAS AND OCEANS. IN ENGLISH THEY ARE CALLED "COW TAIL" STINGRAY BARBED SPINES. THE LATIN NAM4E IS "PASTINACHUS SEPHEN". THE INDIANS USED THE STINGRAY BARBED SPINES AS SPEAR HEADS. THEY WERE VERY EFFECTIVE TO THE EARLY HUNTER.

STRINGRAYS LIKE THE ONE THAT KILLED "CROCODILE HUNTER" STEVE IRWIN ARE COUSINS OF SHARKS. THE TAIL OF THE STINGRAY IS CAPPED WITH A SPEAR MADE OF THE SAME BONE LIKE MATERIAL THAT MAKES UP SHARK SCALES, KNOWN AS DERMAL DENTICLES. THE SPEAR, WHICH STIFFENS WHEN THE STINGRAY FEELS THREATENED, IS SERRATED LIKE A STEAK KNIFE AND PACKS A VENOM THAT CAN BE DEADLY TO PREDATORS.
