While these manta kits are mini, real manta rays are truly massive! The giant manta ray (Manta birostris)  is the largest species of ray, spanning 7 metres in width. That’s longer than most cars.

Manta rays are clever and have the largest brain-to-body ratio of any fish. Their looming size may take your breath away, but they are harmless to humans and feed mainly on crustaceans, plankton and small fish. If you are into mantas, you will enjoy building this kit using LEGO® pieces!
