USA ~Florida's Manatees~

Sent by whinendine. The West Indian Manatee are protected under the Endangered Species. They are herbivorous and their closest relative is the elephant. They produce a single calf every 2-5 years after 13 month gestation period and manatee mothers nurse their young for up to 2 years.
