The leopard whipray is found in the Indo-West Pacific in tropical inshore areas over sandy bottoms and near reefs. It can be recognized by its striking color pattern. The entire upper surface, including half of the tail, is covered in a pattern of circular brown to black rings resembling a leopard’s fur. Its tail tapers to a fine point, like a whip.
This species is ovoviviparous, meaning that the young develop from eggs that remain within the mother's body until they hatch and the young are released alive and fully formed.
Be sure to check out the leopard whipray in the Ocean Voyager exhibit at the Georgia Aquarium.
