Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With their gentle demeanor, big brown eyes, and curious whiskery faces, manatees have long intrigued humankind. Today, as a battle is waged to save them from extinction, they are attracting a large and devoted following. One of nature's strangest and most lovable creatures, manatees have wide, sausage-like bodies that end in a broad, powerful tail, making them look like a whimsical cross between a walrus and a tremendous beaver. Manatee presents the best collection of photographs yet taken of these elusive and endearing sea mammals, capturing their adorable expressions and peaceful vegetarian ways. Taken on Florida's Crystal River, the photographs in Manatee present a rare and affectionate portrait of a reclusive species, the animals thought to be the basis of the mermaid legend. Including a thorough text filled with science and lore, Manatee reveals the many charms of the great sea cow.

Synopsis:
