Manatee in Florida Freshwater Spring

Manatees are large, fully aquatic, mostly herbivorous marine mammals sometimes known as sea cows. They frequently migrate through brackish water estuaries to freshwater springs. They cannot survive below 15 °C (60 °F). Their natural source for warmth during winter is warm, spring-fed rivers.
