A West Australian diver has been ‘nibbled’ by a 150 kilogram stingray

While filming underwater near Rottnest Island, Johnny Debnam, 29, was “covered” by the “huge” ray, whose mouth is located deep underneath its wings.

Johnny Debnam says he’d do it again.

“It covered my body twice,” Mr Debnam told The West Australian.

“Then the stingray came back and covered me again and that’s when we caught it on camera nibbling my head.”

The diver was unperturbed by the gentle giant’s love bite.

“I was totally at peace. I loved that thing going over the top of me,” Mr Debnam said in a video of the incident.

“I’d be stoked to swim with him again anytime.

“Anytime that old stinger’s up for a swim, I’m there mate, I’m there. I’m bloody there.”

Mr Debnam and his fellow divers were reportedly filming a documentary about shipwrecks and marine life near WA.
