Kailey Ray

Kailey was first identified July 10th, 2009 at Manta Village by Ryan Leinbach.  She was about 4 feet across.

She has had to deal with many fishing hooks and scrapes since being identified, however she is a resilient manta ray. During the first few months she was shy, stayed mostly outside the lights and close to the bottom. It took her about 3 months to become trusting to the lights. She has been a regular and often the ”star” of the Manta Village show.
