Sorry to ruin the fun but they are not flying, just jumping out of the water while moving every possible part of their body. Just like salmon, carp etc do when mating. Animal mating is fascinating biggrin.gif ph34r.gif

I have to agree this video is absolutely amazing though!

I get that smile.gif I mean "flying" in a very loose sense. Dolphins jump out of the water as well, I didn't know Manta Ray did the same smile.gif
