Excellent Video of Manta Rays Jumping / Flying

Seen from a pelican's eye. Very cool.

Re: Excellent Video of Manta Rays Jumping / Flying

Those are actually mobula rays, related to manta rays but from a different genus. When I take my natural history classes sea kayaking in the Sea of Cortez, we see displays like this on a daily basis. I've had the opportunity to dive in the middle of a school, and it's even more amazing to see them take off from under water.
