Do manta rays have teeth or venomous barbs?

Manta rays have gill plates that they use to filter tiny creatures out of the water to eat. These are each 1 – 2 mm long. They do not have teeth for defence or biting large prey.
They also don’t have venomous barbs in their tails like stingrays do.
Swimming with manta rays is a wonderful choice for anyone wanting a remarkable animal encounter with a gentle giant.
