Manatee Information


Manatees are marine mammals of the order Sirenia, also known as "sea-cows". These beautiful animals can be found in shallow waters, bays, canals and coastal areas. The manatee has a streamlined body, with two flippers and one paddle-shaped tail. Their true color is gray, although it may appear brownish gray. Adult manatees can grow up to 12 feet in length and weigh around 1,800 pounds. Females are generally larger than males. Altough manatees have few natural predators, they are vulnerable to extinction.
