Carlos is our Guitarfish and he arrived to the SEA LIFE Aquarium of Jesolo 2 years ago from the SEA LIFE Aquarium of Hannover. He was moved from Hannover because that tank where he was living was no more big enough to contain him. His scientific name is Rhinobatidae, but we call him Carlos , a tribute to the famous guitarist Carlos Santana.
This Guitarfish is a shallow-water specie commonly found in the eastern Pacific, he usually lie partially buried on sandy or mud bottoms and is considered harmless to human. In fact, he learn immediately to hide himself behind the corals and the sculptures inside the tank.
