I have heard many times that this fish doesn't grow very big size. Whats in your photo are the biggest they'll grow.

How true is this?

According to fishbase, the max length of the fish is 35cm, that's pretty small for a ray. I've not seen one over a kg so far (as with those in the gallery). Anyway, they're supposed to be one of the better tasting ray despite their size. :drool:

Does all stingrays have it's sting?Just atake a plier & pull out the spike? Is the spike venomous even after death?

Not all rays have stings, a good example is the Manta Ray. (You know those divers swim along with in documentary shows) But it is better to assume that all the rays you landed has stings and usually more than one. Check for them carefully and break it with a pair of pliers. Yes, the spines can still inflict venomous sting if the stingray is already dead, so do be careful.

Does cutting the Ray's tail kill them?
Got to catch'em all! :D

While its spines can grow back, its tail won't. I am not sure if it will live or not, even if it didn't bleed to death, it will not be able to swim well without it and it will be defenseless against predators.
