A rare stingray was pulled from the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida. It's called a giant whipping stingray.

This one was 14-feet long and weighed over 800 pounds. The captain and crew said it took them four hours to land the fish, which they originally thought was some kind of dinosaur.

The ray hooked the line 500 feet below the surface. It was tagged and released.
