leaping mobula rays



In the Sea of Cortez at the southern Gulf of Mexico, there is a spectacular sight of … leaping Mobula rays!

It looks like a futuristic space ship skimming over the ocean’s surface. Or maybe a triangular shaped prototype aircraft launched from the depths.

In fact it is a Mobula Ray, a smaller cousin of the Manta Ray, which puts on a spectacular leaping display. Mobula Ray pictures reveal spectacular leaps […]

They hurtle up from the depths and leap several feet into the air often turning somersaults in the process.
