On September 16th, 2022, Twitter user ふぃっしゅ Fish (@tm3aqua), who works as a keeper at the Oga Aquarium GAO in Oga City, Akita Prefecture, posted a video of a stingray which went viral.

Here are some of the comments it elicited:

  • "He look just like me around 11 PM on a day when I have to work late."
  • "What happened? What's wrong? I've never seen a manta ray do that before."
  • "This clip is kind of addictive. I keep playing it over and over again."

If you're wondering what happened, the stingray, which had been happily swimming in front of the camera, suddenly went limp!

"Here's a stingray suddenly running out of batteries."

It really does look like the stingray reached the end of its energy reserves.

You can almost hear it mumbling: "Maaaanta, I'm so tired..." as it sinks to the bottom of the tank.

Many people seemed to relate to the tired stingray and the feeling of suddenly feeling exhausted and unable to continue.

It just goes to show that, whether you're a stingray or a human, you need proper rest to recharge your batteries!
