I was fortunate to get a few images of this manatee drinking from a hose. Manatees love fresh water to drink. I saw a charter boat captain do this once a couple years ago so when we spotted this one I grabbed the dock hose. After getting a drink facing the water the manatee went under the dock, turned on his back and positioned his mouth under the running water.
