    Manta rays are occasionally completely black, but usually, they have a dark back and white belly. Each manta ray also has a distinct pattern of spots on its belly. These are used by researchers to identify individuals because no two are the same.

    There have also been a few reports of albino manta rays. This completely white form is extremely rare.
