Whale Shark and Manta Ray Gif Roundup

Dr. Simon Pierce (@simonpierce) is a marine biologist extraordinaire focusing on whale sharks. He is the Principal Scientist at the Marine Megafauna Foundation and Science Coordinator of the Global Whale Shark Photo-ID Library.  You can visit it gorgeous website here.  On Twitter Simon shared some gifs of Whale Sharks (Rhincodon typus) and manta rays (Manta ???)  taken last month in Isla Mujeres, Mexico.  With permission I offer them below.  Curious to know more about Manta swimming and Whale Shark feeding? You bet your bippy you are!  DSN has you covered.
