Manatee (ok, maybe not the prettiest creature but they just radiate so much gentleness when one swims up beside you)

Manatees (family Trichechidae, genus Trichechus) are large, fully aquatic, mostly herbivorous marine mammals sometimes known as sea cows.

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.'

Dugongs are distinguished from manatees by a fluked, dolphin-like tail, and a unique skull and teeth. They're found in warm coastal waters from the western Pacific Ocean to the eastern coast of Africa. (by Daniel Selmeczi)

happy manatee. my dream is to one day swim with these beauties. the book i first got from the library and loved was about manatees. the love started early.

Original pinner said "Rehabilitating a young manatee." You suppose he was a drug dealer or pimp?

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!
