    Sorry I can’t identify this one as it’s too far away and on the same horizontal view.

    However, I can tell you that this seems to be a female. Whether it is black or white underside, they are still manta rays. The only way you can distinguish Mantas from Devil rays are from the location of it’s mouth.

    Mantas have their mouths in front while Devil rays have them slightly below.

    how do you know if a manta is male or female?
