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 the size of his claspers, we class this manta as a sexually mature adult.

We were unable to confirm the length of this tail from the sighting data, but we can see that he has no visible wounds, scars or unusual injuries.
