EmmaEmma was first seen during the day at a local cleaning station at Honokohau Harbour. She was first seen with another small new male manta, Grayer. According to Keller, unlike Grayer, Emma was not shy and he was able to get close. She had a nasty hook stuck in the top of her mouth just inside her left nostril. The wire leader was hanging over the top and rubbing a spot on her back.
