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 - although we do not know for sure if she has evidence of mating scars on her left pectoral fin.

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