Five new inhabitants of Australia’s underwater wonder world are featured on Australian Sea Life II – The Reef series.

The magnificent Manta Ray is one of the largest marine species on the Great Barrier Reef.  This graceful creature can grow to 5 metres in width and weigh several hundred kilograms.  Manta Rays feed on plankton and fish larvae, filtered from the water passing through their gills as they swim.   This fish displays curiosity around humans and swims among divers, as unlike the Sting Ray, they are harmless.
