A lil’ video of a momma and baby manatee! SeaWorld had rescued the pregnant and injured manatee in June; last week the manatee gave birth. Some more info from care2:
June 8 SeaWorld was called to Merritt Island, FL to help the 10-foot-long manatee who had severely injured her front right flipper on a crab pot line. The animal had also become tangled in a fishing line that wrapped around both of her front flippers.
Veterinarians had to amputate the right flipper of the 1,380 pound female while they bandaged her other wounds. Soon after the team began to suspect the manatee was pregnant, based on her plump size. A sonogram confirmed the pregnancy and six weeks later the calf was born.
