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 size of his claspers which appear to be in the midst of enlarging, we class this manta as a sub-adult.

He has a long tail, and no visible wounds, scars or unusual injuries.
