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 lack of mating scars on her left pectoral fin, we class this manta as a juvenile.
She has a medium-long length tail, and a large shark bite scar on her left pectoral fin, close to her tail. She also has a small scar on her right pectoral fin.
