Manatee Sifting Sand With Trees Above
Florida manatee, Trichechus manatus latirostris, a subspecies of the West Indian manatee, endangered. A manatee has its snout moving around in the sand with trees above and patterned sun rays. Researches theorize this behavior is sieving through sand to get minerals or nourishment , or it could be scrubbing its mouth or teeth, or maybe it just feels good as the snout is very sensitive.
