Caption: Snorkellers in a river stroking a Florida manatee (Trichechus manatus latirostris). This aquatic mammal inhabits shallow coastal waters and estuaries in the tropical and subtropical Atlantic Ocean and in the Gulf of Mexico. The population of this subspecies of the West Indian manatee is in decline due to the threat of recreational watercraft. Photographed in Crystal River, Florida, USA.
