Test Your Knowledge on The Manatee

Creature Features: Manatee

The big guys of the ocean – whales, sharks, and dolphins – get all the attention! One animal that's missing the boat in the PR department is the manatee. I don't hear many facts or stories about the so called "sea cow," and this one seems like such a friendly guy! Doesn't it look like he's smiling? Let's test our knowledge and see what we can dig up, or figure out, about the manatee!

Heck yeah! As a native Floridian who had a massive crush on my marine biology teacher in high school, you can BET I aced this manatee quiz!

Manatees are one of the best things I am going to miss about not living in Florida anymore. I have seen as many as 80 congregated in a spring together in the winter.

Yeah - 100%!!! Manatees are the best! Had two up-close and personal in the ocean encounters with them, once in Sarasota, FL and the other in Naples, FL. Very playful and curious!
