Manatee Appreciation Day

The name manatí comes from the Spanish “manatí,” derived from the Caribbean word also cited as “manattouï.” The etymology is dubious, with connections having made to Latin “manus,” and to a term used by the Taíno, a pre-Columbian people of the Caribbean, meaning “breast.” Manatees are occasionally known sea cows, as they slow plant-eaters, peaceful and similar to cows on land. They often graze on water plants in tropical seas.
