Florida manatee, Trichechus manatus latirostris, a subspecies of the West Indian manatee, endangered. A young manatee calf warms itself at the surface while taking a breath in the warm blue freshwater and sunlight. The bumpy skin is something calves grow out of after time. Horizontal orientation, peaceful with sun rays and reflection. Three Sisters Springs, Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge, Kings Bay, Crystal River, Citrus County, Florida USA.
