Side Feeders - MANTA - PALAU
side feeding mantas

Out of the over 200 manta rays identified in Palauan waters, the individuals shown here have been filmed and photographed showing unusual feeding behavior, where they exclusively feed sideways, with their lobes sticking straight out, instead of funneled. No black mantas have shown this behavior so far.
