DESCRIPTION & HISTORY
During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 1.6 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on the size of his claspers, we class this manta as a juvenile. In fact, as this individual is so small, it's highly likely that he is a "Young of the Year", meaning he was born sometime in 2017.
He has a long tail, and no visible wounds, scars or unusual injuries.
