DESCRIPTION & HISTORY
During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 2.5 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on the lack of mating scars on her left pectoral fin, we class this manta as a juvenile.
She has a medium-length tail, and evidence of a shark bite injury on her left pectoral fin (as of 26th June 2015).
