Mobula rays have come together in an epic gathering the likes of which may never have been seen before.
With a wing span of two meters or more these flying “devil fish” are hard not to notice, but when they move into the Sea of Cortez by the thousands it’s time to get it on film.
Here is the beauty of oceanic life for all to see.
The mobula ray is similar to the manta ray and part of the same family, Myliobatidae. Simply known by the common name “flying ray,” the mobula can breach the water and attain incredible heights.
As a schooling species, mobula rays can reach thousands of individuals. In the clear water of the Sea of Cortez, they have been known to blacken the ocean with their numbers.
Once they start to leap the incredible show can be seen for miles.
