DESCRIPTION & HISTORY

During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 2.7 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on the size of his claspers, we class this manta as a sexually mature adult. 

He has a medium-long tail, and evidence of a scar from an old shark bite injury, which has since healed.
