Underwater Photographer Finds a Splendid Pink Manta-ray So Rare, He Thinks His Camera Is Broken at First

There are millions of species that live underwater some of them we have recovered and some of them we merely know. There is a percentage of 80 percent of species on our planet’s oceans that are yet undiscovered. Un mapped unobserved and unexplored.

But that may not be entirely the case as a not only scientist but also divers whos their hobbies consist in photography. Thus these underwater photographers sometimes bring us images of these rare sea creatures. this is also the case for Kristian Laine who was recently out diving off the coast of Lady Elliot Island in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

While he was doing his usual water expedition there was the time where he stumbled upon such an unusual sight that, at first, he thought his camera was broken. 

As Laine was photographing a group of male manta rays chasing after a female manta ray, he noticed in his photographs that one was unlike the others. While manta rays are generally black on top and white underneath, this big fish was black on top, but pink underneath.

In one of his interviews, Kristian added “At first, I saw a manta train of 7 manta rays around a bommie at Lady Elliot Island, and they were about 12 meters deep, so I waited for the right moment to hold my breath and dive down,” elaborated Kristian. “When I was eye level with the pink fish, I was looking through the viewfinder and locked eyes with it. Only when I fired my strobes to take a photo, I noticed its pink skin but had no idea there are any pink mantas in the world. I was confused and thought my strobes were broken or doing something weird.”

It is worth mentioning that Kristian had no idea that these types of animals can be of pinkish color. That is why he thought for a second that something was going wrong with his camera. But after examining him closely he clearly saw that this creature is definitely pink. And he was all about to take pictures. that later became viral for the grace and beauty of this sea creature.

During his encounter with the pink manta ray the creature was very calm. He stated that I remember looking into the huge fish eyes and it felt almost as if it was smiling (or, at least, very friendly). The whole interaction lasted about 20 to 30 minutes.”

However, they say that the pink manta was first spotted back in 2015 by Ryan Jeffery. It is believed to be the only suck manta ray in the world, and the pink animal was sighted no more than 10 times in the last 5 years.

Well, miracles of life have no end we just need to preserve our beautiful and precious world otherwise no seas will be left by 2050.

Octopuses have what is called, “decentralized intelligence” which essentially means that their limbs have their own “intelligence”. For example, if a severed human limb touches acid or fire or anything that would cause pain, nothing would happen however if an octopus limb touches acid or fire, it would recoil and avoid it, even though it’s been severed and is no longer attached to the octopus.

The entire Universe outside our galaxy could have completely disappeared over 20,000 years ago and we still wouldn’t know it yet. Our view of the Universe is actually what it looked like anywhere from thousands to Billions of years ago -with no way to see what it actually looks like “right now”. Imagine if you looked out your front window and saw your yard as it was 6 months ago, neighbors house across the street a year ago, and houses a block or two away as they were several years ago. Also off in the distance you see the glaciers from the last ice age. That’s what it’s like looking out at the Universe.
