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 - but we are not sure if she has mating scars on her left pectoral fin.

She has a short tail, and a small chunk taken out of her left pectoral fin, midway along its length.
