I felt pretty lucky to catch these MANATEES at Jensen’s Marina this past week. They are so funny to watch and now you’ll know why they call them SEA COWS. They are so slow, have big boulder-like bodies and their little faces kind of look like a cow face…..sort of. ¬†They aren’t related to the cow, but you won’t guess what animal they are related to…. The elephant! Can you believe it? Enjoy and have a giggle.

PS- Boaters need to be very careful in no-wake zones because manatees can’t get out of the way of the boat propellor quick enough, they move too slowly…hence the scars on their backs.
