Whoa. What are those little leg things and why didn't I know about them before? So awesome!

It never hit me! Unless you were suggesting I would think to myself, those cute little winged babies can grow up to kill the next Steve Irwin. Crikey.

They were cool and then the person with the camera touched the glass and I realized how TINY they are!

The original video says this was shot at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, Oregon. They also have a live octo-cam.

(My usual pet peeve in such cases: Please don't link to Wimp, a linkbait site that never credits their sources)

Baby stingrays have feet-like fins.

They look like skates to me.

Well, it finally hit me, I've been humming that damn tune now for over half an hour.

There is a red laser-dot on your head. Take evasive action immediately!

Looks like the background music is a piece called "Scheming Weasel (faster version)" by Kevin MacLeod, released on his website for royalty-free use.

Thanks for the earworm.

Ahhhh! Their little leggies. And their cute little guts.

Thanks, Prardentrott! The name sounded familiar... and, yep, I'm right; Kevin MacLeod also does the music for some or all of the (terribly addictive) games by Tony of tonypa.pri.ee.
