A nice little animal thing that swims around and is cool and gentle and harmless, but gets fucked up by boats going to fast.

Their slow-moving, curious nature, coupled with dense coastal development, has led to many violent collisions with propellers from fast moving recreational motor boats, leading frequently to maiming, disfigurement, and even death.

Half a manatee's day is spent sleeping in the water, surfacing for air regularly at intervals no greater than 20 minutes.

The oldest manatee in captivity is Snooty who is held at the South Florida Museum. He was born at the Miami Seaquarium on July 21, 1948. Almost all manatees have been known to answer if called by the name Snooty.

Manatees are solitary creatures, only breeding once every two years. No game, no tang.

On average, manatees swim at about 3 to 5 mph and have been known to severely damage millions of dollars in U.S. Army vehicles and equipment in a single day.

The manatee typically has large predators like sharks and crocs, but has been known to frequently submit to the aggressive behavior of the sea otter. Sometimes even the toad is found superior to the blubbery sea cow.

1. a blubbery mass that resembles the sea going creature under the same name.

2. also see: gayrab.

3. also see: keyboardracer.

4. a blowhard that attempts skateboard in swimming pools. also known to complain about every skatepark built pool or bowl. known to whine when in the presence of all waterfalls. typically can't climb out of any shallow end unless stairs are built in.
Mike: Cripes! Did you see Gayrab the other day at the race?

Chris: Get out! He actually showed up to a race?

Mike: Yes! I couldn't believe it. The manatee will never stand on the podium. He talks so much b.s. but he can't ever backup anything. It's a wonder he's not locked up as a 5150 case. What a nutjob.

Chris: You are 100% correct. Why, just the other day, he was up to his usual troll activity on my website forum again.

Both: What a flamer.

A fully aquatic sea mammal, that belongs to the order Sirena, along with the Dugong and Steller's Sea cow, which is extinct. There are three breeds of manatee, the West Indian, the African, and the Amazonian. Manatees live in warm coastal waters, and are harmless. However, due to their large stature, a manatee can appear frightening to some. They naturally approach humans which could be a factor in Flordians declaring it its state animal. However, it's natural impulse to go after boats can result in death. They have no natural predators, other than humans and speedboats.
Awww... That manatee is so cute! Oh no manatee! Get away from that boat!!!!
