Courtney B. Is Looking Forward To Seeing Manatees!
I am excited to see all the manatees. They are called sea cows because of their massive size and are vegetarians. They have whiskers and their closest relative is the elephant.
They are endangered now with only about 4,500 left. Humans pose little threat to manatees but the loss of habitat has taken it toll on the species. They are underwater mammals.
Courtney, we should be seeing these in Panama. They are awesome!
