Manatee salad

In June 2007, I was fortunate to see some manatees in the manatorium* at the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa, Florida. This manatee was going to town on a head of lettuce- some kind of manatee salad.

* I totally made up the word "manatorium.". A better word might be "Sirenium", from the Latin name of the manatee family, but it's just not as mellifluous.

Listen for the manatee music in the video (best from 0:20 to 0:55 or so).

Tonight at 11: When Manatees Attack British Naturalists.

Look out, Sir David!.
