  • History

    Although not the sleekest sea dwellers, it’s thought that Manatees may have contributed to the legend of mermaids. In any case, they are fascinating creatures, and they become more fascinating as genetic analysis reveals mysteries. While it would be easy to look at a Manatee and assume it’s related to the walrus, the closest living relatives of Manatees are elephants and aardvarks. Yes, long-nosed land-based mammals are the Manatee’s next of kin. The only remaining shared characteristics are the lack of a collar bone and nails rather than claws.

    Because Manatees are so gentle and slow, they have been given the nickname ??Sea Cows.?? Manatees usually live alone or in small groups in rivers and coastal areas. They are mammals, so they need to breathe air every 15 minutes. They average 10 feet (3 m) in length and weigh 800 pounds (370 kg).
