Vallaray was identified on October 21, 2006, by Chuck Mather on Ironman day.
She was still a pup and about 4 feet across. It took her some time to get comfortable with the lights, but today she has no fear of being close to divers and snorkelers. She mostly feeds at Manta Village but can also be seen at Manta Heaven.
