For the weekend we motored up to Weeki Watchee Springs State Park, just north of Tampa. I really enjoyed it! They have crystal clear spring water, perfect for viewing manatees and mermaids! They have a mermaid show which was great to watch. I think little kids would get a big kick out of this place!
The manatees were so easy to see and photograph in the clear water!
See the tiny hairs around his snout? They're used like a cat's whiskers to help navigate in murky water!
Did you know that manatees have independent prehensile lips? They can curl either lip around a morsel of food to grab it! Cool, yeah?
