DESCRIPTION & HISTORY
During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 3.0 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on the size of his claspers, we class this manta as a sexually mature adult.
He has a short-medium length tail. He has scars caused by fishing line entanglement on the trailing edge of his right pectoral fin. This manta also has a large scar on his left pectoral fin from a past shark bite - however it seems to have healed well.
