The Amazonian manatee is the only sirenian (species of manatees and dugongs) that lives exclusively in freshwater habitat. During the wet season, manatees will feed on water lettuce and hyacinth, consuming up to ten percent of their body weight over the course of a single day! When the dry season arrives, the manatees fast, relying on their fat reserves until food becomes plentiful again. Photo taken .
