    Abstract

    This suborder includes all of the Eagle Rays (Myliobatidae), Cownose Rays (Rhinopteridae) and the Mobulid Rays and includes about 40 species which are characterized by diamond shaped bodies and wing-like pectoral fins which they use to propel themselves through open water. Eagle Rays and Cownose Rays feed on the seabed, using their mouths to dig amongst the substrate in search of buried molluscs and crustaceans, while the mobulid rays lead a complete pelagic life. The order has 8 families under it.
