Stripe It is a concept with different meanings that even has more than one etymological root. When it comes from the Latin word rad (which, in turn, derives from radius), can be used to name the line , he stroke or the groove that, in some way, is recorded or recorded in a body .
For example: "Someone made a line on the car door: I suspect it was a cyclist who brushed the vehicle", “When they brought the new furniture, they left a line on the wall”, "Who was responsible for the line on the kitchen floor?".

Raya, finally, can come from Latin raia and refer to a fish flattened rhombus-like characterized by its long tail (in certain species ending in a poisonous sting).
The stripes belong to the order of cartilaginous fish known as rajiformes , which has a close relationship with the shark since its structure of their skeletons coincide almost entirely, as well as the morphology of their gills and the amount and type of fins they possess. The main differences between the two can be seen in the outer shape of their bodies, since the rajiformes have a very characteristic flat body.
Some of the most outstanding features of the stripes are the following: they have the cornea fused with the skin surrounding their eyes; his teeth have a flat shape and his jaws are projectable; those who do not live in the background, when they breathe, capture the air through the spiracles (external holes present in several terrestrial arthropods and certain vertebrates aquatic), instead of by mouth; Almost all of them are viviparous (their offspring are born ready to relate to their environment since they develop completely in the female's womb).
While it is believed that the stripes have a dangerous sting capable of injecting poison to its prey , only two families have this characteristic. The stinger is located at the tip of its tail and looks very sharp; that of the Australian line, for example, can reach up to 30 centimeters in length. It is interesting to note that the stripes replace his stinger with a certain frequency. Yes the poison does not usually cause death to humans, there are fatal cases , like that of the well-known "crocodile hunter", a famous character from Australia.
The line is found in all the seas of the Earth and feeds on mollusks and crustaceans. Given its physical appearance and customs, it differs considerably from the rest of the fish. While it is an animal Marine who lives near the coast, can be found in certain rivers.
