DESCRIPTION & HISTORY
During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 1.8 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on the size of his claspers, we class this manta as a juvenile.
He has a long tail, and sadly a sizeable chunk of his right pectoral fin has been amputated.
