Who doesn't love a manatee?

Today is Manatee Appreciation Day, a celebration and day of awareness about these gentle giants.

Manatees like to hang out in coastal areas, inhabiting the Florida waters during the winter.

These incredible creatures then go on summer vacation! (No, really!) They migrate in packs during the summer season for more agreeable temperatures.
