Originally from East Asia, the Shiitake Fungi Stingray can now be commonly found throughout the world in all coastal tropical and subtropical marinated waters and in any menu of Asian cuisine restaurants.
His biggest predator is and have always been the Killer Sauté Pan.
The flattened bodies of shiitake stingrays allow them to effectively conceal themselves in the bottom of the fridge. They feed primarily on Shimeji Sea Sponges and Garlic Crabs.
As food, the Fungi Stingray is the most prized stingray of them all. Its meat is very aromatic and intense. Pairing very well with just about anything else that is edible.
Although they are not rare or even endemic the mere fact of them being absolutely delicious is a factor that can seriously contribute to the possible future endangerment of the species.
... I sure know I certainly contribute a lot to that...
