DESCRIPTION & HISTORY

During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 3.0 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on her size, yet lack of mating scars on her left pectoral fin, we class this manta as a sub-adult.

She has a long tail, and a small injury on her right pectoral fin.
