Australian Sea Life II - The Reef - Manta Ray 2012
Manta Ray 2012
The magnificent Manta Ray is one of the largest marine species on the Great Barrier Reef.  This graceful creature can grow to 5 metres in width and weigh several hundred kilograms.  Manta Rays feed on plankton and fish larvae, filtered from the water passing through their gills as they swim.   This fish displays curiosity around humans and swims among divers, as unlike the Sting Ray, they are harmless.

The octopus can be found all around the coast of Australia. This marine species has two eyes, four pairs of arms and unusually, three hearts; it has no internal or external skeleton, allowing it to squeeze through tight places.  The octopus is among the most intelligent of all invertebrates and if threatened will hide, flee, expel ink, or use color-changing camouflage.
