Manta Ray, the intelligent
Not only are manta rays the largest rays, there are many more
interesting facts about them. Follow Canvas Kids as we exploring
Manta ray has more than one species. Modern biologists have
classified them into two species for further studying:
- Oceanic Manta Rays are large rays. Their wingspans are
typically 6-7 meters. They can be found in the Andaman sea.
- Reef Manta Rays are smaller rays. Their wingspans are 3 - 4.5
meters. They are social animals and live in herds. We can find
them in the Maldives and Indonesia, for example.
Their brains weigh as much as their bodies. Manta rays are
considered highly intelligent. They are able to jump out of the water
and shake themselves to remove attached parasites or suckerfish,
or just to get female rays attention for mating. Sometimes, they
might even jump out of the water just for fun, a behavior typically
found in more intelligent animals.
