The Gulf of California in Mexico is the home of the Munk's devil ray. Their scientific name is Mobula Munkiana – which is where their common name Munk’s Devil Ray comes from. Growing to only 1 meter (3 feet) wide makes them the smallest of the Mobula genus, which includes other species of devil rays as well as their much larger cousins – the Manta Rays.
Plunging in a handful metres of water, I was surrounded by dozens of mobula, attracted by the light of the torches, which attracted and concentrated the rays around the light source. The Mobulas, mouth full open, are totally disinterested of divers, exhausted bubbles, strobes of underwater’s cameras and they form a continuous carousel, going on feeding in front of our eyes until the lights will be switched off.[the_ad id="61677"]
