DESCRIPTION & HISTORY

During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 3.0 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on the lack of mating scars on her left pectoral fin, we still class this manta as a juvenile despite her large size.

She has a short-medium length tail, and no visible wounds, scars or unusual injuries.
