Get a closer look at one of the sea’s most relaxed creatures in this CollectA Ocean and Ice Manatee Toy Figure.
Sometimes dubbed as the teddy bears of the sea, the slow-moving manatees are adorable marine mammals that are large and have stubbly snouts. These peaceful creatures are typically found on coastal areas and rivers where they eat mangrove leaves, seagrass and algae. Manatees are closely related to Dugongs and are shown to have evolved from the same land animals as elephants more than 50 million years ago.
One of the earliest records of manatees is from Christopher Columbus’ notes, where he penned that he saw female figures or mermaids swimming in the ocean. As you take a closer look at CollectA’s lifelike Manatee, you probably won’t see any similarities to a mermaid, but you’ll be captivated by this mammal’s placid expression.
