Manta birostris (Giant Manta)
This image was taken at Guinjata Bay's very own Manta Reef, which happens to be one of the top 10 dive sites in the world. There are 2 species of Manta in this area: Manta birostris and Manta alfredi. They give birth to a single live 'pup' only every 2-3 years, and are capable of breaching just like their Humpback Whale neighbors. Mantas are gentle giants who can be timid, yet curious, and sometimes enjoy gliding just above where divers are-- since the bubbles emitted from the divers regulators tickle their tummies.
