Description

They are characterized by a flat rhomboid body, with a lateral margin of the head that continues with the front margin of the large pectoral fins in the shape of wings. The largest species reach 4 m in length. The eyes are placed on the back, the mouth is ventral. The dorsal fin is absent or barely sketched. The tail is thin and long, and is equipped with a poisonous sting; in larger specimens, the spine can reach up to 35-40 centimeters in length, has a serrated profile and is covered by an epithelial sheath. Dasiatidi Dasyatidae Chondrichthyes Pastinaca Trigone intotheblue.it

At the root of the spine there are two venom glands that secrete a substance composed of the 5-nucleotidase and phosphodiesterase enzymes, which destroy cells, and serotonin, which causes muscle contractions. The action of this enzymatic complex is necrotizing and this is combined with the possibility of even serious bacterial infections.

If the interested party is a vital organ, the course can become deadly (see the example of the television presenter Steve Irwin, who died in Australia following numerous shots received by a trigone on September 4, 2006).

They are benthic animals that spend most of their time resting on the bottom, covered by sand or mud.

Supply

The diet of dasiatids includes molluscs, worms, crustaceans and fish.

Reproduction

They are ovoviviparous animals, in which the eggs are incubated and hatch in the maternal organism.  Dasiatidi Dasyatidae Chondrichthyes Pastinaca Trigone intotheblue.it

In the Mediterranean Sea the family is present with 6 species: Dasyatis centroura, Dasyatis marmorata, Dasyatis pastinaca, Himantura uarnak (migrante lessepsiana), Pteroplatytrygon violacea and Taeniura grabata.
