Guess how many rays are in this fever off St. Petersburg to win a free canoe

It's quite the congregation.

In waters off St. Petersburg, See Through Canoe captured a massive fever of cownose rays on video this past weekend.

It's quite the congregation (see above), but can you guess how many slow-moving bottom dwellers appear in the footage?

The person who determines the correct amount of rays will receive a free transparent canoe set from See Through Canoe. The set includes the canoe, plus two paddles, two seats, one bottle of polish, flotation and one skeg.

To enter the contest, all you have to do is email [email protected] with your one guess — yes, just one — in the subject line and your first and last names, email address and phone number in the body.

That's it.

"This large gathering of Cownose Rays happens every year in the same spot but only lasts for a few days," writes See Through Canoe in the description of the video, which was uploaded to its Facebook page. "The rays start showing up at a specific location and once the group reaches a certain size, which only takes a few days, they leave the area as a huge fever and migrate. A group of rays is called a fever."

The contest runs until 11:59 p.m. May 1.
