Skate fish and sting rays have different tails, fins, teeth, and mode of reproduction.

FAQ’s (Frequently Asked Questions)

Are stingrays and skate fish from the same order?

No, although they are both cartilaginous fish, they are from different orders.  Skate fish are members of the Rajiformes class whose members are distinguished by their enlarged pectoral fins.  Stingrays are members of the order Myliobatiformes.  Members of this order were originally classified as Rajiformes before being classed as a separate group.

Skate Fish vs Stingray: Reproduction

Stingrays and skate fish also reproduce in vastly different ways.  Stingrays are viviparous which means that they give birth to live young (known as pups) which are fully formed.

Skate Fish vs Stingray: Fins

Stingrays and skate fish also have slightly different fins.  Skate fish have pelvic fins that are divided into two lobes and a small but very distinct dorsal fin.  Stingrays have only one lobe on their pelvic fins and the dorsal fin is mostly absent, or extremely small and difficult to see even when it is present.

Skate Fish vs Stingray: Teeth

Another difference between skate fish and stingrays is their teeth.  Although stingray teeth might not look like teeth in the traditional sense, they have definitely got some.  Stingrays have teeth that look like flattened plates.  They are made from modified placoid scales, which are also known as dermal denticles.  Incredibly, these dermal denticles are actually the same sort of scales that cover a shark’s body.
