Talk about shock value! Instead of venomous barbs, electric rays generate a strong, electric discharge from massive and highly specialized electrogenic organs in order to ambush prey. The marbled electric ray, for example, will wait patiently in the dark hours of the night until fish, swim pass and then jump on prey while emitting electrical shocks to stun it. These shocks can even reach a charge of 200 volts! : Shutterstock/Kim Briers #electricray #oceans #ray #marinewildlife #coolfacts #predator #prey
