    The West Indian manatee – also known as a sea cow, reaches up to 4 meters long and weighs up to 600kg. Like whales and dolphins, manatees are mammals. Despite living in water they have to go to the surface frequently to take in air but when at rest they may stay underwater for up to 15 minutes. They are graceful, gentle animals who rarely fight and have no natural enemies. The manatee’s closest relative is the elephant and the hyrax
