Bodhi is a mature male manta approximately 8 feet across. On the night of May 1, 2009, as I descended for the night dive at Garden Eel Cove, he approached me very closely and made a few fast turns, showing both dorsal and ventral regions then departed. There may be a oval scar on his left, dorsal surface
