Schleich 2021 Manatee 14839 

The Manatee is a herbivorous marine mammal with an enormous cylindrical body.

The Manatee is a mammal that lives in tropical waters and feeds on seagrass, algae and other aquatic plants. Its closest relative is an elephant. Its front legs have evolved into fins over millions of years, while its hind legs have completely disappeared. The manatee’s tail is shaped like a paddle, whereas a dugong, which looks very similar, has a tail fluke that looks like a dolphin.

Fun fact

Manatees can grow to be over 500 kg in weight. They are also known as sea cows.
