The Mobula Ray

 

La raie Mobula

This is a cartilaginous fish whose body have two big "wings" , a short tail, an almost flat head with at the two sides, two tips called cephalic horns alluding to a horned animal hence its vernacular name of "sea devil". The small eyes are located at the bottom sides of each tip, in opposition to the mouth. The animal gets on the stomach side 5 hearings pairs. The superior jawbone is without teeth but the inferior one gets many teeth whose exact function is unknown.

The manta ray is most of the time blue but can be black or grey, often white-spotted on some parts. The stomach zone of the animal is generally white, sometimes black-spotted.
In our area, you can see them in August.
