Uhane Nui

Uhane Nui was identified on August 12, 2007 at Manta Heaven by Ryan Leinbach. At this time he was 5 feet across.

He needed some time to get used to bubbles and lights and he eventually overcame this fear. We have enjoyed his presence many times at the site where he comes close to divers and snorkelers.
