Manta ray glass pendant for Men or Woman was made as a result of my interest in helping this endangered species. They are becoming more endangered by people who sell the gills as some type of medicine on the Chinese market. Studies have shown that this doesn't work as claimed.
They can be more than 20 feet in length and weight as much as 5,000 pounds. Some types of Manta Rays engage in the process of migrating.
They can lose their protective mucus membrane if they are touched by humans. The Manta Ray has the largest brain to body ratio of all sharks and rays on Earth.
You will very rarely find any Manta Ray in captivity due to their size. They are currently only found in four aquariums in the world.
The average life span for a Manta Ray is 20 years.
They are very close relatives of the shark. Ironically, sharks as well as whales are their main predators. They are also closely related to the stingray but they don’t have a stinger. They are amazing when it comes to the acrobatics that they display.
Glass & fire is promoting this art form and helping to conserve nature and the wild. We will be sending a portion of the sale to a foundation that are helping to conserve this endangered group.
