Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Amazonian Manatee is a species of manatee that lives in the freshwater habitats of the Amazon basin. They are found in Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana and Venezuela. Amazonian manatees are aquatic animals of the Sirenia order and are also known as "seacows." Their colour is grey but sometimes appears to be a brownish grey. They have thick, wrinkled skin, are almost hairless but have "whiskers" around their mouths.It lacks significant predation, other than being occasionally hunted by humans. The manatees, and the closely related Dugong, are unusual in being the only plant-eating marine mammals of modern times.show more
