A photographer in Australia managed to capture new images of the pink-colored manta stingray, discovered in 2015 and viewed only 7 times. The photographer, who shared the images he captured over the internet, enabled the manta stingray to go viral.

There are hundreds of creatures that will be enchanted when you see them in immense seas. One of these creatures is the manta stingray, also known as the sea demon. These creatures, whose wingspan can reach 7 meters and its weight reaching up to 1,350 kilograms, live mostly in tropical waters and their lineage is decreasing day by day. Now a photographer has managed to display a pink pink color of the already interesting sea demon.

The pink manta stingray, viewed by a photographer named Kristian Laine, was first discovered in 2015. Pink stingray, which can only be viewed 8 times since the day it was discovered, arouses great admiration when you see it. If you wish, let’s take a closer look at this sea demon on Australia’s Lady Elliot Island.

Laine had a hard time convincing those who saw the photo that her pink manta stingray was real. Some experts even thought that the camera might be broken, saying that they had never heard anything about such a creature before. But Laine’s camera was not broken, and this pink stingray had only been detected so far. So the image above shows a sea demon, the only one of its kind.

Scientists tried to understand why this creature was pink in color after detecting the pink manta stingray in 2015. In fact, scientists have started a study called “Project Manta” in order to be able to recognize the sea demons who have both pink and normal colors. However, the lack of sufficient data until now has made these creatures mysterious.

Scientists who continue their work within Project Manta had the opportunity to perform a detailed skin biopsy on pink manta stingray in 2016. Scientists wanted to understand what difference this animal had in their biopsy. However, the studies did not yield the desired results and scientists brought blood that the pink color was caused by a genetic mutation.
