A diver swims in the shadow of a 16-feet wide manta ray. Diver and professional photographer Franco Banfi snapped this in the water off the coast of the Socorro and San Benedicto Islands in the Pacific OceanPicture
Bucket List, Tara, Scuba Diving, Amazing Animal, Deep Blue
Manta rays are some of the most amazing animals. I was lucky enough to see one while diving in the Similan Islands off of Thailand. It only took over 15 years of diving until I saw my first one! Of course, one girl on the liveaboard with us was doing one of open water dives for certification - so it took her exactly 3 dives before she saw her first manta!
Manta rays are related to sharks. Unlike there stingray brothers,they are docile and not a danger to people. But we can be a danger to them sadly.
A giant Manta Ray. Manta rays are large eagle rays belonging to the genus Manta. The larger species, M. birostris, reaches 7 m (23 ft) in width while the smaller, M. alfredi, reaches 5.5 m (18 ft). Both have triangular pectoral fins, horn-shaped cephalic fins and large, forward-facing mouths. They are classified among the Elasmobranchii (sharks and rays) and are placed in the eagle ray family Myliobatidae.

Pink Sea Anemones - Sea anemones are, for the most part, sessile creatures which means they remain attached to one spot. But if conditions grow inhospitable, sea anemones can detach from their home and swim off in search of a more suitable location. They can also slowly glide on their pedal disc and can even crawl on their side or by using their tentacles.

Anemones, often mistaken for plants, are actually predatory animals closely related to Coral and jellyfish. Anemones are polyps that attach themselves to rocks on the sea bottom or on coral reefs. The pretty tube like petals often seen swaying about are venom-filled tentacles targeted at paralyzing passing fish. With nearly 1000 species of sea anemones and spread throughout the World’s oceans, although the largest and most varied occur in coastal tropical waters.
