The Manta Ray is one of the most majestic creatures of the ocean. With its "wingspan"
able to reach lengths of 20 ft, and its gentle nature towards humans, most people can't
get enough of this magnificient giant of the waters. So little is known about the basic
biology and life history of the Manta Ray, and through marine biologists and other
scientists, we've come to understand a little more about them, with every
peice of research. Mantas truly add to the diversity, the beauty and the
mystery of our world, and without them, our planet would seem
a significantly poorer place. To understand the Manta Ray
better, we should start first with its Classification.
