Manta Ray Maldives 1

The manta ray, or \'Cheap manta\' (Manta birostris), is the largest of the rays, with the largest known specimen having been about 7.6 m (about 25 ft) across, with a weight of about 2,300 kg (about 5,060 lb). It ranges throughout all tropical waters of the world, typically around coral reefs.

Mantas are most commonly black above (dorsally) and white below (ventrally), but some are blue on their backs

A manta's eyes are located at the base of the cephalic lobes on each side of the head, and unlike other rays the mouth is found at the anterior edge of its head

To respire, like other rays, the manta has five pairs of gills on the underside. To swim better through the ocean, they have a diamond shaped body plan, using their pectoral fins as graceful "wings".
