Manta Ray

By admin| March 29, 2012|

Often described as a gentle giant of the sea, the manta ray commonly inhabits areas between southern NSW and the tip of Cape York, as well as Ningaloo Reef off Western Australia. They are also found in tropical waters throughout the world. These graceful, saucer-like creatures are extremely agile, being able to move at rapid speed while often breaching the water in spectacular fashion. They are also known to commonly inhabit 'cleansing stations', (where wrasse, remora and angelfish remove parasites)
