What Eats a Manta Ray? The various species of shark in the world are predators of the manta ray and unfortunately, also are humans. The manta ray is now protected in the Maldives, which stops people from being able to buy manta ray meat at the market and this is helping to increase chance of manta ray survival in the future. The manta ray lives in warm, tropical waters particularly in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. While the manta ray is known to swim quite deep, they are most commonly spotted scuba diving maldives in shallow waters, close to coral reefs, where they feed on plankton.
