I was looking for the perfect manta ray for a decent price for months and a lot of them just seemed too small for me to really cuddle or not lose, etc. I took a trip to the Toledo Zoo in Ohio and this was the last one in the gift shop because I has thought the other manta rays in the shop were too small and my mom was kind enough to buy it for me. It's definitely one of my top 10 favorite plushes ever. It's 5ft head to tail and has a 4ft wing span. It's very well made with beautiful realistic eyes. This is a must have for jumbo or aquatic lovers.
