DESCRIPTION & HISTORY

During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 2.8 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Due to her size, we still class this manta as a juvenile. She's not quite large enough to be a sub-adult, and we've not been able to confirm if she has any mating scars, that would prove that she's sexually mature.

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