The giant manta ray is the largest type of ray in the world and can be found in tropical and subtropical waters and sometimes even in temperate waters.
Despite its size, the giant manta ray only feeds on small organisms such as plankton. With the help of its cephalic lobes which form a funnel-like structure while feeding, the plankton will be channeled right into its mouth.
The giant manta ray is listed as vulnerable by the IUCN due to the decrease of its population.
