More manatee love today!

Did you know?

  • Sailors once mistook manatees for mermaids!  The scientific name for the zoological order manatees belong to, Sirenia, comes from the word “siren,” a sea creature from Greek mythology whose beautiful songs lured sailors to shipwreck.
  • West Indian manatees can hold their breath for up to 20 minutes underwater, but usually surface every few minutes for air.
  • They swim at an average speed of 3 to 5 miles per hour.
  • And they spend 10 to 12 hours a day sleeping — We’re oh-so-jealous!
