As a dugong, I am a proud member of the only herbivorous marine mammal species. I eat 40 kilograms of seagrass every day. Happy grazing my fellow #seacows

November through March you can swim with manatees or sea cows in natural environment. If you are able to get up early, it will be a chance to interact with them, cause manatees are active in the morning.They are cute and amazing, some of them like to play ... Don't worry, they are vegetarian 😁

But, did you know that manatees may have been the inspiration behind many sailors’ tales of sirens and mermaids? History Channel reported that during Christopher Columbus’ first trip to the Americas, his company recorded a sighting of three mermaids in the waters surrounding the island of Haiti. He reported seeing these mermaids rise from the sea near his route. Later it was discovered that these mythical mermaids were most likely manatees or dugongs.

O its just a mantatee getting its grub on. I not going to lie I wanted to be in the springs with them swimming and eating.  However from what I hear is that, at this place, they'll arrest you for that. So the window seat underwater was just fine.

Mini manatee pendants/charms! Super cute, small! Would look great on a tiny silver chain!
I love making these little guys!

It’s still 5+ months from snorkeling season and I’ve already got cabin fever! Here’s a couple of hungry #seacows rummaging for food in the #chassahowitzka substrate. As they munch away they really do remind you of there terrestrial counterpart.

So as you may have read if you caught our last IG post with the monkeys, We had a magical paddle down the Silver River in central Florida. It was so magical in fact we had to go back and bring our animal loving friend Ashley @asoutherngypsy the very next weekend! We even dedicated our most recent blog post to it, link in profile @coleman_concierge .
.
.
We had never seen manatees in real life before moving to Florida and it was the thing we were most excited to see when we got here. They are such beautiful gentle creatures, even though they aren't cute by typical standards, they are just adorable to us! .
.
It is so important that we appreciate in value the wild things around us and take every precaution to protect them. We have a lot of good information on guidelines ethical manatee encounters in our post, many of which, unfortunately, had not been disclosed to us previously when going on excursions to see and snorkel with manatees. .
.
Researching our post reinforced to us how important it is to do your homework and to remember that even people/ companies that seem legitimate might not have all of the correct information.

Is there a animal that you are dying to see in the wild, or one that you were especially passionate about protecting? Please tell us about it in the comments.

November 15th marks the beginning of manatee season so here are just a few of the millions of reasons to love these gentle sea cows! 🌊🐄. Manatees were often mistaken for mermaids by sailors. I can see the resemblance ❤️😉🧜🏼‍♀️. Manatees’ closest land relatives are elephants. They both are mammals, have rough, grey skin, primarily herbivorous, and have “marching molars”. Their teeth will “march” forward replacing the ones they always use for chewing their vegetation get dull. 🐘

They can live in both fresh- and saltwater habitats! They surface ever 15 to 20 minutes to take a breath so be careful on the waterways!

Manatees are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972!

Manatees are one of my favorite things that Ian (@nairebew ) and I have bonded over the past few years. We can sit and watch them for hours 💙🌊

#tbt to our Islamorada trip in the Florida Keys back in 2017! This was our second trip here & it was amazing! This is down at the jetty where we were staying & we had a family of Manatees regularly visit! Olly was mesmerised! We were so fortunate at what we got to see on our doorstep as we saw stingrays & nurse sharks daily too!

Such beautiful creatures, definitely my favourite from the ocean (well, a tie with turtles which were also plentiful in the keys!)

Sea Cows or Manatees are such gentle creatures. They are agile and quite fast. Some time ago while snorkeling, I came upon a mom and her calf. I wanted to get a closer look however, mom and baby moved so briskly I never got close enough to stroke their side. #mothernature #manatees #seacows # vegetarians #beauty #sweet #gentle #florida #mammals #amazing

Unbelievable experience to get to swim alongside manatees today! We loved every minute of our adventure and can’t wait to do it again in the future. A huge thank you to @birds_underwater for putting the manatees safety and happiness above all else.*

Got to experience the manatees today and it was by far everything I dreamed it would be. I placed this on my bucket list when I was a small child when I saw some at a rescue center. Now after 20 years it is now a completed bucket list item. .
