BAD ASS MANTA RAY MUGS UNDER WATER CAMERA MAN

Via: Shock mansion

Remember a little while back when we shared a story in which an Octopus stole a point-and-shoot camera and led the owner in a 5 minute under water chase? Well now there’s a story that’s crazier and bigger in almost every aspect.

Travis Matteson was recording underwater footage of manta rays during an underwater night dive off Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, when a gigantic manta ray suddenly approached and stole his Canon 5D Mark II underwater rig worth about $5,000. Luckily, another cameraman was nearby to capture the whole incident on film.

With the camera still running, the manta ray made a 8 minute run, and finally dropped the gear off completely undamaged just yards from the dive boat. Apparently the manta ray just wanted to contribute some footage of its own.
