Swimming with Manatees (USA). 'These lumbering, intelligent creatures seek Florida’s warm-water springs and rivers each winter, and many places offer the chance to snorkel beside them as they chew sea grass and nuzzle their children. Top of the list, though, is Kings Bay, near Crystal River on the Gulf Coast, where upwards of 500 may gather on a cold January day.'
It will never cease to amaze me that manatees are on the endangered species list and they have NO natural predators. Man is their only predator with his fishing nets and boat propellers. What a majestic creature!
