RE:wading boots

One last point on this topic - when wading tropical sands / mud with sting ray potential, one should consider the tops of the boot for resistance to puncture. Sting rays curl backwards and sting the top of the foot if you accidentally step on one. Better yet, keep the sole close to the bottom in turbid water to increase the likelihood of hitting the ray from the side instead of the top. I've never stepped 'on' one, but have had a lot of close calls.
