Jaw-Dropping Footage as Manatee Pushes Canoe

On Saturday, Feb. 3, Mark Freels of See Through Canoe and his friend, Michael McCarthy, went canoeing in Florida. At one point a manatee approached them and started to nudge one of their canoes, Fox 13 reported.

“Manatees are often more than just friendly, sometimes they’re pushy!” See Through Canoe commented on its Facebook page.

Manatees are peaceful, mostly herbivorous marine mammals sometimes called sea cows. They can grow up to 13 feet and 1,300 pounds, according to National Geographic.
