DESCRIPTION & HISTORY
During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 2.4 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on the size of his claspers, we class this manta as a juvenile.
He has a medium-long tail, and a shark bite injury along his right pectoral fin.
This manta has been seen in multiple atolls; Baa Atoll and in North Male Atoll.
