Baby Manatee Calf Meets Mom
Watch this video of a manatee calf spotted with its mother. The calf will stay close to the mother for one to two years to learn travel routes and the location of food, rest areas and warm water refuges. Females generally give birth to a single calf every two to five years. Credit: 'Sellamoment' via 'Viva2020'
