DESCRIPTION & HISTORY
During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 1.9 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on her small size and the lack of mating scars on her left pectoral fin, we class this manta as a juvenile.
We were unable to gauge how long her tail is from this brief encounter, but we did note that she has no visible wounds, scars or unusual injuries.
