Manta Rays Swim With Divers

Manta rays are some of the largest fish in the sea, the biggest ever caught measured 7.6 metres (25 ft) across, and weighed of about 5,100 lb. Their top swimming speed is around seven miles an hour and, despite their huge size, mantas only feed on tiny plants and animals known as plankton filtered from the water passing through their gills as they swim.

What i am seeing here diguests me!...great photos except for the fact that humns should NOT touch these animals. We have oils and germs on our skin that can cuase disease in these animals, even if you are wearing gloves, you remove their natual skin protection making them vulnerable. Please!...enjoy these animals, but do NOT ride them...Sincerely and with great love for these gentle giants, CJ
