Amazing moment when hundreds of eagle rays converge to form the shape of Australia

  • A drone captured a clip of hundreds of eagle rays forming the shape of Australia
  • The video was just taken on Easter Sunday in Jervis Bay on the NSW South Coast
  • About 200 eagle rays swam off the coast of Nelsons Beach, forming a square
  • Dozens more rays joined the group before making the shape of an Aussie map

A drone has captured spectacular images of hundreds of southern eagle rays that form the shape of Australia in the ocean.

The video was shot in Jervis Bay on the NSW South Coast just before sunset on Easter Sunday.

At least 200 eagle rays swam off the coast of Nelsons Beach, forming a near-perfect square shape at first.

A drone has captured spectacular images of hundreds of Southern Eagle Rays that shape Australia off the coast of Nelsons Beach at Jervis Bay on the NSW South Coast.

Dozens of rays then joined the group before making an Australian map configuration – without Tasmania, unfortunately.

‘Fortunately we found a school of rays over the weekend, apparently it’s rare to see this,’ Vicky Denham, who captured the footage from the drone, captioned the video.

Southern eagle rays live in southern Queensland and around southern Australia to the southwest coast of Western Australia.

They are also known to be found across the ditch in New Zealand.

Eagle rays are not dangerous to humans unless they are caught and handled in the wrong way.
