The Great Manta

Captain A.L. Kahn posing with his fresh catch, the Great Manta, 1933. The huge ray was reported to have weighed over 5,000 pounds and measured more than 20 feet across the wing. The critter was caught when it became fouled in the anchor line of the “MISS PENSACOLA II” and was unable to free itself.
