I always love Manta, but since I start working in Lembongan, I have met so many people who work closely with Manta and it fascinates me everytime I heard new things about Manta; their behaviors, the interactions between them, why they choose this location and not the other, why some mantas keep coming back to the same place while the others might not. All things that we should know more about this giant creature.
