Manatees are large, brownish-gray, seal-shaped marine mammals.
Adult manatees can grow up to 13 feet and weigh up to 3,000 pounds.
Female manatees are usually larger than males.

Skeleton not fat
A majority of a manatee's body weight does not come from fat or blubber, but from its skeleton. Manatees have a thin layer of fat between the surface of their skin and their muscles. Manatee bones are solid, heavy and help the manatee stay submerged underwater using little energy.
