i have a shack on the coast in tasmania and was snorkelling around diving for abalone one day when i swam over a small rocky shelf.  the top of the shelf was pretty close to the surface of the water so i couldnt see what was on the other side; i got to the other side and realised i was directly above an ENORMOUS stingray - it would have been literally about 6ft underneath me.

this happened about a month after steve irwin got killed by a stingray so i freaked right out!!! it was all i could do not to panic and frantically swim to shore. i ended up drifting as sneakily as i could over to the rocks n when i got there i jumped up on there and actually cried!
