Meet the Manatees – my wet buddies …. Their reality show screen test


    Meet some of my big wet friends, Mathew and Matilda Manatee. They just stopped by to say HI! Some facts about my friends … they live in the warm tropical waters around Florida and in the Caribbean. Mat and Matilda eat vegetation varying from sea grass to mangrove leaves. An adult can reach eight feet in length and weigh 500 pounds or more. They’re mammals, but can slow their heart rates to less than a beat a minute allowing them to stay submerged for long periods of time. They come into our sheltered canal each spring to make more manatees. You know – the birds and the bees thing.

    • I know this sounds like heresy for a Golden Retriever, but I don’t like water any deeper than my tummy. MY humans have been in the water when the manatees are around. Since the canal is salt water the manatees love to drink fresh water from the hose. Both Mrs. G and The Geezer manage to leave the hose run into the canal “for a while” when Mat & Matilda & friends are there.
