    Abstract

    The giant freshwater whipray, Urogymnus polylepis belongs to the family Dasyatidae, the most species-rich family of the order Myliobatiformes comprising 19 genera and 89 species (Last et al., 2016a). Whiprays (subfamily Urogymninae) mostly live in marine environments worldwide in both tropical and temperate waters, while only a few species penetrate into estuarine and freshwater environments due to their remarkable physiological adaptability (Last et al., 2016b). Urogymnus polylepis is one of such species which primarily lives in freshwater environment; however there are records from brackish waters and even from marine coastal habitats (Last et al., 2010; Vidthayanon, et al. 2016).
