Manatees: The manatee is adorable and completely harmless giants that live in shallow waters. They are aquatic herbivores and a large part of the day is carried out either during sleep or for food. These creatures for a leisurely way of life, the huge size and vegetarian preferences are also called sea cows. Manatees weigh up to 600 kilograms and their body length averages about 3 meters.
The pictures were taken by Ellen Cuylaerts in the National wildlife refuge crystal river, Florida. The river here is like a magnet for manatees. It is shallow, warm, very clean and serene. Not surprisingly, these marvelous creatures have chosen it.
It tells the photographer, the group warned that manatees will stay away from people, but they both liked the girl-diver named Margot that they wanted to swim with her and even allowed to stroke. The girl did not expect this, and at first even was frightened, when the giants began to approach her, but soon their charm dispelled every fear.
