With a wingspan of up to seven metres, it’s little wonder this is the largest of all the rays. Graceful and agile but powerful and magnificent, Manta Rays can appear out of nowhere gliding past like a huge space-ship with Remoras attached underneath as their wingmen. Lady Elliot Island on the Southern Great Barrier Reef is one of the hot spots for Manta Rays with up to 350 individuals visiting the island during winter.

The Cod Hole, on the northern end of the GBR in a section called the Ribbon Reefs, is a great place to spot these hefty fish, which can weigh up to 250 pounds. Years ago, these mammoths were hand-fed by divers. Even though that is now illegal, the cod are still affable; they have no qualms about brushing up against humans.

Giant clams can grow to be more than 3 feet long and live more than 100 years. They are said to be the largest bivalve mollusks that have ever existed. Most giant clams are simultaneous hermaphrodites, meaning they are both sexes at the same time.
