Full Answer

A scallop is a bivalve, which means its shell comes in two pieces. The shell is fluted and can come in many colors. The scallop is also notable for having rows of tiny, sapphire blue eyes around its mantle. It's harvested for its flesh.

The stingray's pectoral fins have grown to resemble wings, and its body shape resembles a kite. Its usually long tail is equipped with a venomous stinger. It is not related to the scallop.
