According to Manta Trust records she was last seen on the 20th of February 2015 and was recorded to no longer be pregnant. From our images it looks like her baby bump is no longer there....so there must be a little 'Sumo junior' swimming around somewhere :) (Information provided by Manta Trust) Notice the new mating scars on her left pectoral fin.
