DESCRIPTION & HISTORY

During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 2.9 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on his body size, and the size of his claspers, we class this manta as a sexually mature adult.

We're not sure how long his tail is, and he has no visible wounds, scars or unusual injuries.
