The Rabbit Ray is comparably small, having a rather flat body. Its head has two large eyes, a small mouth resembling that of a real life rabbit, and two bright orange protrusions pointing backward. Its body adorns two large undulating wings and ends with a pair of caudal fins.
The Rabbit Ray also features a spectacular body coloration, with most of which is capable of emitting bioluminescent glows: its wings having glowing blue outlines, its dark blue dorsal side dotted with bright blue spots, its underside a dull yellow, and its tail fins blue and orange in color.
The Rabbit Ray will swim around aimlessly, but can be observed staying in one spot near their eggs.
If the player gets close to a Rabbit Ray, it will emit different variations of a soft cry. Their cries can be heard even if the player is not around them. The cry can be notably heard in the Safe Shallows.
Data Bank Entry
A herbivorous aquatic lifeform, rabbit rays appear to live serene and solitary lives, with few predators, a natural sense of curiosity and awesomely poisonous flesh.
Evidence indicates the rabbit ray has gone through many recent evolutionary changes to live as it does, most notably its large, side-facing eyes. It is possible there are related ray species in other environmental biomes on the planet.
Assessment: Inedible but harmless
- The player may have the ability to use the Rabbit Ray as a makeshift Seaglide in a future update.
- When the player first exits their Lifepod through the bottom hatch, a Rabbit Ray can be seen along with two Holefish.
