I would sure think so.
A sting from a stingray is different from that of a jellyfish or Man O’ War. Stingrays have long thin tails with serrated spines that contain venom. These spines are able to inflict deep cuts and/or puncture wounds. Stingrays aren’t normally aggressive, so most stings (and stingray stings are very common) occur when a person in the water accidentally steps on one. With their flat bodies, stingrays are almost invisible lying on the sandy bottom of the ocean.
SYMPTOMS OF A STINGRAY STING
· Immediate sharp, agonizing pain in the area of the sting. If a stingray stings you, you’ll know it immediately!
· Bleeding from the site of the wound that will last for 1-2 hours.
· In time, the wound may become swollen and the color of the skin around the wound may look red, blue, or very pale.
· In some cases, the lymph nodes of the victim may become swollen.
· Systemic symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, fever, chills, fainting, muscle cramps and tremors, a rapid heartbeat, low blood pressure, and even seizures may develop. If any of these symptoms develop at any time, even days after the sting, seek emergency medical care immediately. In some cases, stingray stings can be fatal.
