Taken from Chapter 13: Manatee Sailors once thought that manatees were mermaids. Today, some people call manatees "sea cows," but the manatee is not a cow. It is a large, friendly mammal that lives in fresh or salt water in Florida, the Caribbean, and the northern coast of South America. Manatees often travel together in small groups. Mothers and babies sometimes swim with their flippers linked, as if they were holding hands. Sometimes mother manatees cradle their babies in their flippers.Review:
Every animal is unique, but some creatures are definitely more unusual than others! Children will love reading about the mudskipper (a fish that can breathe and live on land); camels, llamas, and octopuses (animals that spit!); and humankind - possibly the strangest animal of all. Unlike any other animal book available, Weird Animals explores a hidden world of unique and peculiar creatures never before found together between the covers of a single book. Amazing photos and entertaining information will fascinate readers of all ages. -- Midwest Book Review
