A female Manta ray makes the guys work for her affection. She swims around the reef and all potential suitors form up behind her. They follow as close and as long as they can. She does not make this easy, swimming fast through obstacles to try and thin her following. This can last for several hours but eventually only the strongest and most agile male will remain and win her affection.
