Sometimes called sea cows, manatees are large, mostly-vegetarian mammals (kind of like a sea… cow…). Three different species of manatee live in the Gulf of Mexico/Caribbean, the Amazon River, and in western Africa. Check out savethemanatee.org’s Manatee Cam! (And, for extra credit, look up manatees’ cousins, the dugong! They’re like manatees with dolphin tails.)
