Ke’kai’malu was identified on October 15, 2011 at Manta Heaven by Martina Wing.
His name was inspired by Andrew Osoro and the Hawaiian meaning is “Peaceful Ocean”, which is a beautiful reference to this magnificent angle-like creature. He was shy at first and stayed on the outskirts, then soon he made his way to the “high traffic area” (with 9 other mantas) and checked on the food close to the bubbles and lights.
DESCRIPTION OF MARKINGS
