Check out a manatee eating a fish!

Manatees are called sea cows, and are beloved here in Florida. Locals enjoy feeding them lettuce and spraying fresh water for them to drink, when they come up through our canals. These slow, gentle giants amuse and entertain us when we are kayaking or enjoying our waters. Sometimes they even hang out under our docks.

The one thing that we all know to be true, though, is that they are vegetarians. It’s just a known thing. You can imagine my surprise, then, when we came across this guy munching away happily on a snapper!
