Put on your swimming gear for this next adventure!
February is the best month for viewing the endangered Manatees in a number of Forida State Parks.
We went to Homosassa State Wildlife Park and stood under a pavillion to watch swimmers with the manatees.
It’s the first time we’ve seen someone spend this much time with one.
There was a Mama and baby close by.
Then we walked down a trail to see even more!
Do you see those huge dark humps in the water?
That is over 100 Manatees enjoying the warmer temps in Crystal Springs!
It’s the most we’ve ever seen at one time!
They are often called Sea Cows (they are herbivores and graze up to 7 hours a day), weigh around 1,300 pounds and are around 12 ft in length. Would you be brave enough to get in the water and pet one?
I’m not sure I would…can I bring my camera?
I’m joining Saturday’s critters HERE.
