Baby Manatee

$20.00

Manatees live in the warm slow moving waters of Florida. These large herbivores are slow but graceful swimmers and important to the ecosystem. Living up to 40 years, manatees only give birth once every two years. This baby manatee was about 60 pounds when he was born. He will stay with his mother one to two years. People tend to like manatees and want to touch them. Human interaction endangers manatees because the tamer they are the more likely they can be accidentally harmed by boats. Baby Manatee has been painted to remind people of the wonderful wildlife in our oceans. This small acrylic painting measures 5 x 7" and is in a nice textured frame. The rich blue and green colors of the water and light coming in from above indicate the shallow waters that make these Florida waters home.
