It never ceases to amaze me how the hughest animals of the world can be so gentle, when it comes to their babies. This little one is liking the cuddeling it's getting from momma! So sweet! Babies nurse between the mom's 2 front feet, just under the chest. This helps her keep her baby untouchable, for safety and calm feeding. God's creation is so awesome!
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.'
