DESCRIPTION & HISTORY

During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 3.5 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on the presence of mating scars on her left pectoral fin, we class this manta as a sexually mature adult.

She has a short tail, and a small shark bite on her right pectoral fin.
