A hideous sea creature from the ocean off Chile. It is described as a cows hide in the water with fins, a tail ending in claws, tentacles and eyes around its side where a head should have been. It is so large that when coming into shallow waters it could create a storm. It would normally swim into shallow waters and lure fisherman towards it. Then it would envelope them sucking all life force from their bodies. Some people believe that the Manta may have been a Giant Manta Ray.

Manta has been viewed 1863 times.
