ORLANDO, Fla. -- Staff at SeaWorld's Discovery Cove are celebrating the birth of two spotted eagle ray pups.

The pups were born April 2nd and are receiving around-the-clock veterinary care from Discovery Cove’s team.

Spotted eagle rays are in the fish family, recognizable for their flat, wide bodies and unique spotted coloration. Like fingerprints, each spotted eagle ray has its own one of a kind pattern.

This is the first birth for proud parents Nerina and Apollo.
