DESCRIPTION & HISTORY

During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 2.0 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on her small body size and the lack of mating scars on her left pectoral fin, we class this manta as a juvenile.

We weren't able to confirm the length of her tail during our first, brief encounter, but we did note that she has no visible wounds, scars or unusual injuries.
