  • Families still want to see the Manatee is not so entered. (Ancient town manatees will come! That, said the Little Mermaid and reputation is very good and really regret the time, where's the Little Mermaid? It was a shock. ) Think the Little Mermaid and the teeth thing, in its own way, cute. I'm sorry.

  • It was just in the diet. Cabbage has floated two Manatee feeding with short arms, was munching. Water tank next to the parent, and ate cabbage is let down on purpose. I would not recognize food and were captured because they eat aquatic plants that naturally grows, parents are not sinking. Eat, holding bait floating Aquarium born children are accustomed to floating pellets grew from next season after thought is so adorable we snorkeled.
