Manatees (also known as sea cows) are known for their immense size (growing up to 13 feet long) and jowly appearance (weighing up to 1200 pounds).
Manatee Appreciation Day is devoted to raising awareness about these aquatic mammals . Unfortunately, manatees are endangered. Although hunting manatees is usually illegal, they continue to be poached for their meat and hide. Also, manatees are often fatally injured in collisions with boats.
