I am looking forward to this Wednesday because it is Manatee Appreciation Day! Here are 3 cool facts about these large and gentle animals:
- Manatees are also called sea cows. The nickname “sea cow” comes from the fact that they love eating sea plants all day long!
- Even though manatees live in the water, they are related to elephants and hyraxes.
- Manatees live in shallow waters. They can be found in North America from Florida to Brazil, the Amazon River and some rivers in Africa.
What do you love about manatees?
Have a great day!
