The nether ray is a beast native to Draenor/Outland and Bonich. It has a body much like a stingray's (thus the name) with a long tail and two feathery plumes. It has crystalline growths and stripes running down its body, and all types are brightly colored. Nether rays have been found in Netherstorm, Zangarmarsh, and Shadowmoon Valley and are tamable as hunter pets.
Nether Rays are among the most trusted, versatile mounts in all of Outland and beyond.
Native to the Terokkar Forest, nether rays spawn during the rainy season. Out of the hundreds of offspring resulting from one hatching, very few survive to adulthood. Adult nether rays are relatively docile, but their younglings are short-tempered and highly energetic beasts. The sting of the nether rays are filled with venom.
While not especially big as a whole, at least one titanic specimen has been allegedly spotted by adventurers in Zangarmarsh, dubbing it "Count" Ungula. The Cenarion Expedition would be interested in proof of the creature's existence.
