Caption: Giant manta (Manta birostris). The manta is the largest of the rays, reaching up to six metres from wingtip to wingtip and weighing up to 3 metric tons. It inhabits tropical seas throughout the world, preferring coastal waters to the open sea. It feeds mainly on plankton and small fish, which it filters from the water as it swims. Photographed off Nosy Be, Madagascar, Indian Ocean.
