DESCRIPTION & HISTORY
During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 2.7 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.
He has a medium-length tail, and has some notches on both his pectoral fins, likely caused by fishing line.
