Manatee

Trichechus manatus
I was hoping to see some manatees on my day off in Crystal River. I found a mother and calf out in Kings Bay, and then came back to the Three Sisters spring to cool off with a quick swim. It was very impressive to swim up next to one of these creatures. Pardon the underwater videos, it is harder to keep them steady and on target and swim than you would think.
