DESCRIPTION & HISTORY
During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 2.8 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on the size of his claspers, we class this manta as a sexually mature adult.
He has a medium length tail, and some injuries along the trailing edge of his right pectoral fin, likely caused by fishing lines.
