DESCRIPTION & HISTORY

During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 2.7 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. We have no confirmation of mating scars on this individual's pectoral fins, so we are not sure if she is sexually mature, or still a juvenile.

From the ID photo, we are unable to tell how long her tail is. From what we can see, she has no visible wounds, scars or unusual injuries.
