DESCRIPTION & HISTORY

During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 2.9 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on the size of his claspers, we class this manta as a sexually mature adult. 

He has a medium length tail which has a bend in it - but otherwise no visible wounds, scars or unusual injuries.
