DESCRIPTION & HISTORY

During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 2.5 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. We are unable to confirm the gender of this individual, but based on its size we class this manta as a juvenile.

From our brief sighting we are not sure of the length of the manta's tail, but from what we can see it has no visible wounds, scars or unusual injuries.
