Manta masih satu keluarga dengan ikan pari, makanya suka disebut ikan pari manta. Jenis yang ini merupakan jenis pari terbesar dimana lebar tubuhnya bisa mencapai 7 meter! 😲

Tidak seperti pari, ekor manta lebih pendek dan tidak bersengat. Ciri lainnya, di wajahnya terdapat semacam tanduk yang bisa ditekuk untuk membantu memasukkan plankton ke mulutnya.

Saat kami ke manta point, yang mana spot ini masuk dalam itinerary tour Bajo, sayang sekali kami hanya menjumpai 2 ekor manta. Hanya dua ekor saja tapi mampu membuat kami teriak-teriak udik kegirangan dan lari kesana kemari.

Percayalah, mereka tidak sekecil kelihatannya..

Manta dikenal ramah dengan manusia. Dia suka berenang di air hangat sehingga sering muncul ke permukaan. Beda dengan pari yang sukanya mengendap di dasar laut.

Karena keramahannya ini, kadang orang memegang ekornya agar bisa berenang bersamanya, tetapi sayangnya seringkali itu mengakibatkan ekornya putus. πŸ™

Demikianlah cerita kapten kapal kami.. Kasihan ya! Makanya kamu jangan kejar-kejar manta(n) lagi ah!

 

Cheers!

    You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be really something which I believe I’d by no means understand. It seems too complex and very large for me. I am looking ahead on your next put up, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!
