This is the first manatee post on the site. Manatees are definitely odd-looking creatures, but that’s what makes them so cute! According to National Geographic Kids, (which you should definitely check out), manatees are herbivorous marine mammals that can grow up to 4 meters (13 feet) long and can weigh up to 600 kilograms (1 300 pounds). That’s huge! Also, since they are mammals, they have to rise to the surface to breathe in air, but they can stay underwater for up to 15 minutes.
So here are our goofy manatees!
