A Florida swimmer freaked out when friends on a boat told her a giant, dark shape in the water was approaching her.

“OH MY GOD, I SEE IT,” she yells as it gets closer. “I’M GONNA TOUCH IT.”

Turns out, it was just a friendly manatee.

The animals are huge (they can grow up to 13 feet) but harmless (and are vegetarians).
