A School of Rays Can Drown You – Be Careful If You Dive in Deep Water!

When a person thinks of the deep sea, he often thinks of something dark and mysterious. But it’s important to remember that even the smallest sea creatures can cause a lot of damage to a mere human. After all, everything in the ocean is in its natural environment–it can breath underwater and is used to surviving all the ocean dangers.

You never know the true power of the sea until you dive deep into it. Just take a look at this wild video of a massive school of mobula rays recorded off the coast of Baja California.

There are literally tens of thousands of rays swimming and flying through the air–quite possibly the largest school ever filmed. A human would probably not survive if they were somehow caught up in this massive group of sea creatures!


Mobula rays can attain width from wingtip to of up to 5.2m (17 ft), although the ones in this video are typically about 2m (6 ft). They can weight over a ton and are known as the second largest Manta species in size. But other than this, not much is known about them.

So if you are adventurous enough to dive into waters like this, please be careful! Watch the full video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
