Torpedo Ray

(Torpedo nobiliana) is an electric ray found in the Atlantic Ocean from Nova Scotia to Brazil. It is the largest known electric ray growing up to 6 feet (1.8m) and weighing 200 lbs (90kg). It is capable of producing a discharge of 200 volts. It uses the shock to capture its prey such as flatfish, slamon, mullets, eels and some crustaceans. It usually lives over sandy or muddy bottoms but as an adult it can be found pelagic in deeper waters.
