Scientists from The Deep in Hull have discovered the first hybrid manta ray off the coast of Sudan. They travelled to the country as part of a wider research project which is looking for new ways to conserve the species. The creature they found is believed to have parents from different species.
During their trip, experts successfully tagged and released 22 manta rays. They can now be tracked and monitored for 12 months. Genetic samples from one showed characteristics from two species which were previously thought to be reproductively isolated.
