WHAT IS A MANATEE?




The manatee, sometimes called a sea cow, is a large water mammal. It belongs to the same group of mammals as the dugong. There are three species of manatees. The Caribbean manatee lives in the Caribbean Sea and along the northeast coast of South America. It is also found in the coastal waters of the southeastern United States, particularly in the bays and rivers of Florida. The Amazon manatee lives only in fresh water. It dwells in the Amazon and Orinoco river systems. The African manatee lives in the rivers and coastal waters of western Africa. All three species have been hunted for their flesh, hide and oil, and are endangered or threatened. The manatee feeds on water plants. Its upper lip is divided into halves, which close like pliers on the plants. A manatee can consume more than 100 pounds of water plants in a day. In Guyana, in South America, manatees have been used to keep waterways free of weeds. A manatee has light to dark gray skin, with bristly hairs scattered over its body. Its front legs are paddle shaped and its tail is rounded. It has no hind legs. The Caribbean manatee may grow to 13 feet long and weigh up to 3,500 pounds.
