DESCRIPTION & HISTORY

During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 2.9 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 long tail, and possesses a small scar on his right pectoral fin, likely from a shark attack.
