"Stingray Touch"

Stingray Touch

For some, the big shocker of this seasonal exhibit may be that stingrays, despite the intimidating name, are actually safe to touch. The close encounters happen under a tented outdoor structure, in a new 18,000-gallon pool inhabited by a few dozen cownose and yellow rays gliding through the water. Aquarium staff members lead a 15-minute "touch experience" while reassuring you that the Shedd's health team painlessly trimmed the winged animals' predatory defense barbs.
