Manatees are pretty stinkin’ cute. There’s no doubt about that. With their big, dopey eyes, egg-shaped heads, and large bellies, it’s not hard to see them and instantly feel the urge to cuddle them. Did I mention that it kind of looks like they’re always smiling? There’s something incredibly adorable about an animal so large being that smiley!
So, now that we’ve firmly established the cuteness level of manatees (it’s high, if that was unclear), let’s examine what else we know about them.
Where do they live? What do they eat? What dangers do they face? And speaking of danger, are they dangerous? I really hope they aren’t dangerous because that would sort of destroy the whole smiling thing.
In the quiz below, you’ll find the answers to these and many other questions you’ve always had (even if you didn’t know it) about these lovable sea cows! But there’s a twist. Instead of true/false or multiple choice, we’re tasking you with finding the lie in the statements about manatees.
Good luck, and don’t forget to share your score with your friends!
