Manta Rays

Named after the Spanish word for cloak, manta rays are one of the ocean's most striking species of fish. Their incredible wingspans can grow over 20ft across and they have the largest proportional brain size of any fish. Indeed, they are extremely smart creatures and research suggests they may even be able to recognise their own reflections in mirrors! Click on any of the images below for more manta ray photos.
