Florida manatee, Trichechus manatus latirostris, a subspecies of the West Indian manatee, endangered. A mother manatee rests with twin female calves in the warm springs on a cold and blustery winter day. One calf is resting on top of mom. Twins are rare and these are not documented but evidence suggests they are twins and not a calf plus an adoptee. Bundled up kayakers observe in the distance. Rare series. Horizontal orientation split image.. Three Sisters Springs, Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge, Kings Bay, Crystal River, Citrus County, Florida USA.
