Manta Ray Brunch: Like Us, They're Social Eaters

July 11, 2017 - Aerial footage captured a unique view of reef manta rays feeding together off the coast of Oahu, Hawaii. The rays swim in a circular pattern that is actually a social way of eating and also makes feeding more efficient. While they feed, the rays take turns being in front so each of them can get the most plankton. Manta rays are very social and filter-feed together on a regular basis.
