Manatee Nuzzles On Mask Strap
Florida manatee, Trichechus manatus latirostris, a subspecies of the West Indian manatee, endangered. A female snorkeler is observing a manatee who is investigating the ridges on her snorkel with its snout. Even when no-touch observation is followed some manatees can be very curious and investigative. Horizontal orientation and polite, passive observation, no touch. Three Sisters Springs, Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge, Kings Bay, Crystal River, Citrus County, Florida USA.
