The bottle cap is silver without branding and measures approx. 3 cm wide. The keyring features a metal alloy D-snap hook for easy attachment. The total length of the keyring is approx. 7.5 cm.
Giant Manta Rays (Mobula birostris) are a charismatic open ocean species which moves gracefully through the water feeding on plankton. They are huge but gentle animals, often measuring more than 7 m wide, capable of travelling hundreds of miles and diving to enormous depths. Unfortunately, Giant Manta Rays are listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List, with global populations decreasing as a result of human activity. You can find more information on this enigmatic species, including their ecology and conservation actions being taken to preserve the species, here: https://www.iucnredlist.org/ja/species/198921/126669349
