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 the the presence of mating scars on her left pectoral fin, we class this manta as a sexually mature adult.
She has a short tail, a shark bite on his left pectoral fin, and a small fishing line injury on her right pectoral fin.
