DESCRIPTION & HISTORY
During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 2.4 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on her size and the lack of mating scars on her left pectoral fin, we class this manta as a juvenile.
She has a long tail, and a small notch on her right pectoral fin, probably caused by fishing line.
