DESCRIPTION & HISTORY
During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 3.4 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. In fact, this individual was observed as pregnant during an encounter on 11th October 2016.
She has a short tail, and no visible wounds, scars or unusual injuries.
