Check out this giant ray that landed on a boat! HeraldTribune

A spotted eagle ray that jumped into a pleasure boat on Wednesday stinging one of the occupants is photographed at the Lighthouse Point Fire Department in Lighthouse Point, Fla., Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2006. James Bertakis, 81, remained hospitalized Thursday after the stingray flopped onto his boat and stung him, leaving a barb in his chest. Doctors were able to remove the barb during surgeries Wednesday and Thursday by eventually pulling it through his heart and closing the wound. (ASSOCIATED PRESS ARCHIVE / 2008)
