Time well spent with a Manta Ray

March 1, 2017

This one was encountered in the Gulf of Mexico. This one has some tag-alongs. The Manta Trust has an in-depth article about all the things that ride along with mantas, and discussion of whether the mantas themselves may derive any benefits from the pairing. Apparently some fish species live their whole lives inside the mouths of mantas!

You could buy a pirate T-shirt, if so inclined.
