Habitat

ManateeBy Catia Lai

Characteristics

They are HERBIVORS!!!!!They eat algae and sea grass mostly but Manatees can eat other plants too.

Diet

A manatee uses its flippers and tail to steer itself. It moves its tail up and down to propel its body forward through the water. Manatees can swim vertically and upside down.

Predators

There really is no animal predater but humans are responsible. Ships and boats bump manatees and manatees are very slow. Manatees dont eat prey that thier predaters eat. Then there is no fighting over food.
