Cal­i­for­nia Acad­emy of Sciences re­cently shared its aquatic life with the world cour­tesy of sev­eral live stream­ing apps, the lat­est of which brings view­ers face-to-face with an or­der of ba­toid known as mylio­bat­i­formes. St­ingrays Live pro­vides a high-def­i­ni­tion we­b­cam stream show­ing cownose and honeycomb rays cir­cling a man­grove la­goon in search of their next meal.

Tune in ev­ery Tues­day and Thurs­day at 1:30PM PST to see scientists serv­ing din­ner for the rays or hop over to the al­ter­nate Reef View for a change of scenery, or to get up close and per­sonal with other mem­bers of stingray tanks.

We can’t get enough of this kind of app — it makes for a great vis­ual back­drop when play­ing mu­sic or work­ing out. We’d love to see an audio op­tion, be­cause st­ingrays aren’t as cool in ab­so­lute si­lence.

Watch st­ingrays find food, or tune in at feed­ing time for guar­an­teed ac­tion.
