The Unique Manta Ray booklet ages 2+

What makes a Manta Ray Unique:

Manta rays are surprisingly smart. Mantas have huge brains,  the biggest of any fish,  with especially developed areas for learning, problem solving and communicating. The giant rays are playful, curious and might even recognize themselves in mirrors, a sign of self-awareness.

What do Manta Rays eat?

Manta rays are flat-bodied fish, but there are only two species. Manta rays do not eat meat or fish from other marine animals. They have to be fed a lot of tiny living organisms called plankton, floating in the water.  They have little teeth but these are not good for chewing. Manta rays are related to sharks.

Are Manta Rays dangerous?

Manta rays are not dangerous because they are not aggressive nor have venomous sting.  The skeleton of manta rays doesn’t have bones, but is made of a soft material called cartilage.  Manta rays develop in eggs inside their mother, and exit out of it completely independent. They live in warm waters; you never see them in cold or icy spots.

How big are Manta Rays?

Giant manta rays are the largest rays in the world with wingspans up to 29 feet wide and weights up to 5,300 pounds. Manta rays are the only vertebrate animals with three paired appendages: two wing-like pectoral fins; two sets of gills; and two lobes that extend from the mouth and funnel in water.
