A truly wondrous natural phenomenon has been captured in photo. The world’s only known pink manta ray. In the aquatic world, even grown fish sometimes retain the magnificent colors nature bestows on them at birth. Clown fish, for example, are beautifully hued creatures that keep their rainbow colors for their entire lives, but larger fish — manta rays, for example — are a dull, rather uninspiring shade of grey, or even a dull brownish green.
Vivid colors like aquamarine and bright pink aren’t found on large sea critters; it’s as though nature gave them size, and decided that was enough of an advantage, since they can pretty much take on any adversary they encounter under the sea. But all of that changes now with the discovery of this pretty in pink manta ray.
