Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

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.
