Black Magic Manta Ray
Black Manta ray glides across white sands underwater in Raja Ampat, West Papua.
These rays have the largest brain of any fish, and anyone who has looked into the eye of a manta can sense the intelligence looking back.
Typically Manta rays are dark grey on their backs and mostly white on their undersides. Melanistic (or black) are completely black on their backs and almost entirely black on their underside.
