DESCRIPTION & HISTORY
During our first encounter, we estimated that this manta was roughly 3.1 metres in width, from wing-tip to wing-tip. Based on her large body size yet of mating scars on her left pectoral fin, we class this manta as a sub-adult.
She has a short-medium length tail, and a minor shark bite injury mid-way along her left pectoral fin.
