A Manta Ray is a type of ray and is closely related to sharks. They are found in tropical and subtropical waters all over the world.Manta Rays can grow up to 7 meters (23 feet) wide and weigh up to 2,200 kg (4,850 pounds). Mantas are filter feeders, meaning they eat mostly plankton.

Manta Rays have a pair of large fins on their back which they use to swim. They also have two small fins on their head which they use to steer. Mantas can swim up to 25 mph (40 kph).

Mantas are very graceful creatures and are often referred to as “the wings of the sea”. They are commonly seen swimming near the surface of the water, but they can also dive down to depths of up to 200 meters (656 feet).

Manta Rays are very gentle animals and are not known to be aggressive. They are often seen with their young swimming near the surface. Mantas are listed as “vulnerable” on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
