Manta Ray

Manta rays are extraordinary animals, fascinating scientists and divers all over the world. Yet, very little is known about their ecology and behavior, most of the observations being made around coastal cleaning stations. Manta rays are the largest rays in the world. The Giant manta ray reaches up to 7m disc width and the Reef manta rays up to 5.5m. You can differentiate those two species mostly by the color and shape of the pattern on their back. Also the spot patterns on their belly are relevant (see pictures). Most of the mantas are black on their back and white on their belly. But some black (melanistic) and white (leucistic) polymorphs also exists.
