Manatees Pretend to Be Kraken

[kml_flashembed movie="" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /]

Andy, a fellow naturalist, has a habit of jokingly calling manatees “attack beasts”.  At least I thought he was joking.  It seems Andy had a bit of a run in with some manatees a few months ago when they sidled up to his kayak and decided to investigate it.  I thought he was full of tall tales until I found the above video. 

Someone should tell these tiny cow-Krakens that they aren’t abiding by the Marine Mammal Protection Act and need to maintain a distance of 150ft!
