DESCRIPTION & HISTORY

During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 2.3 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on the size of his claspers, we class this manta as a juvenile. 

We're not sure of the length of his tail, but we know he has no visible wounds, scars or unusual injuries.
