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 size of his claspers, we class this manta as a sexually mature adult.
He has a short tail, and a shark bite injury on his right pectoral fin, found near the tail.
