There is only one known pink manta ray in the world and the Australian photographer Kristian Laine had the honor of being able to photograph the animal.
Nicknamed Inspector Clouseau after The Pink Panther, the 11-feet tall animal lives near Lady Elliot Island, which is part of the Great Barrier Reef. Inspector Clouseau had been seen less than 10 times since his discovery in 2015.
“I had no idea there were pink mantas in the world, so I was confused and thought my strobes were broken (…). I feel humbled and extremely lucky,” Laine told National Geographic.
