Manta Ray facts:
The word ‘manta’ is actually Spanish for blanket or cloak, and it’s pretty easy to see the connection.
Mantas have the largest brain to body weight ratio of any living fish; giving it enough smarts to make the average dolphin jealous.
A fully grown oceanic manta ray can reach a wing span of up to 7 meters and weigh up to two tonnes. Its smaller reef cousin grows to 4.5 meters and weigh an average of 1.5 tonnes.
Lifespan: Up to 50 years
Mantas are endangered animals and need our help! Urgently!
