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 her size, we class this manta as an adult. However during our encounter we were unable to confirm whether she has any mating scars on her left pectoral fin. Whilst she is likely to be sexually mature, we cannot be 100% sure that she has mated yet.

She has a short tail, and no visible wounds, scars or unusual injuries.
