It's Manatee Appreciation Day!
A few years ago I was kayaking and ran across a group of manatees feeding on the side of the Intracoastal in Jacksonville. I stayed clear of them and it was amazing how they were curious and swam under the kayak, and then back to eating. They've got to eat a lot of grass to maintain their figure!
I visited Seaworld in Orlando and they were nursing a manatee back to health to release him back into the wild and I caught a quick video of him filling up on salad.
And check out how the manatee communicates in video number 3.
We love these guys so much!
