Night of the Mantas (Webisode 76) Back to Webisodes »
At night off the Kona coast, divers use lights to attract vast clouds of plankton, which in turn attract dozens of Manta rays to feed on the plankton. Jonathan travels to Hawaii to meet these Manta rays, including one particular animal named Lefty who has been coming to this site since 1979.
