DESCRIPTION & HISTORY

During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 2.4 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on the lack of mating scars on her left pectoral fin, we class this manta as a juvenile. 

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