There is no denying the fact that the ocean is beyond magnificent; the best thing about it being the diverse range of marine life one can experience. The following footage features one of these sea creatures called a mobula ray. I lost myself for a moment when I saw these unusual but beautiful animals breaching out on the surface!
This video was captured by the BBC and it features a school of these amazing creatures leaping out of the water and flying momentarily in midair. They are known to fly as high as two meters above the ocean’s surface! Similar to other sea creatures, mobula rays fly up and belly flop into the ocean to make a big impact, in order to attract a mate.
The video starts with a huge mass of these rays swimming together in a sort of ball. The narrator says that the problem with being in such a large group is finding a way to stand out from the crowd. In order to attract a mate, he means. Just wait until you see what they do.
Suddenly they all spread out under water, and then we see just one break the surface and leap as far as he can above the water, and come down flat in a big splash. Then, in slow motion, we see many of them spread out across the surface of the water, leaping into the air, all in hopes of getting lucky on their first date.
