Manta rays try to fly like birds

This is bizzare, manta rays are filmed jumping out of the water and flapping their wings, err fins, or whatever.

According to several researchers, manta rays are often seen jumping out of the water, as high as 2 feet, and then returning to the sea. Scientists are not sure why this jump takes place - it is just one of the many things yet to discover about the manta.



Here is another video of it, its so bizzare....



Some good pictures on this great site.

I have seen many of these in schools. Florida. And huge Manta Rays in the Gulf of Mexico while in a chopper.
