Manatee Profanity Manatee

The African manatee (Trichechus senegalensis), also known as the West African manatee or sea cow, is a species of manatee that is mostly herbivorous. African manatees inhabit much of the western region of Africa – from Senegal to Angola. Although scientists do not know a great deal about this species, they hypothesize that the African manatee is very similar to the West Indian manatee (Trichechus manatus).
