The Amazing Manatee, also known as a sea cow, are giant intelligent animals, they live in Sea water, but actually have to find fresh water to drink, sadly especially in times of drought it means getting close to humans boats and, propellers, which is more of a threat to them, than any predator, because they have very few if any, the Manatee can weigh up to 4,000 pounds and, get about 12 feet in length. There are 3 different kinds of Manatee, the Amazon Manatee, West African and, West Indian, the Manatee's closest relative is the Elephant and, they can also live over 60 years, pretty awesome looking animal too, they aren't one of the fastest though, there top speed is about 4 mph lol.

You know what is sad? They were endangered because some poachers thinks they were delicious. I have nothing againts hunting but endangered species should not be hunted.

The Manatee should not be hunted at all and, I am pretty sure it's illegal. I haven't heard of people eating them, but if so that's despicable. I believe you should only hunt what you will eat and, only certain animals, like Deer, Elk or Fish.

@TRBRocks420 I think invasive animals like Nutria (It is a giant guinea pig the size of a dog and it is said to taste like pork), Tiger prawns an d snake head fish should be hunted while endagered animals should be left alone. Whale hunters hunts them during absence of whales. There should be strict regulations when it comes to hunting.
