Rarest of the Rare – Albino Stingray

This has to be one of the rarest fish on the planet. I’ve not seen an Albino ray like this before, I assume it is a Potamotrygon Motoro aka Occelate River Ray. It is very hard to tell being an Albino variant though, it makes the pattern hard to see. Either way, whatever this beauty is, it is amazing. I assume it’s from a private breeder somewhere. I found the image with no explanation but the odds of this being wild caught are very slim in my mind.

If you know where it came from or where more photos of this stunning Ray are please leave a comment.

Update – It is indeed from a private breeder but not a Potamotrygon Motoro as I first thought. It is a Potamotrygon Leopoldi. The breeder is from Thailand. Thanks to Nate in the comments for the link.
