Manatees, or matinées, are a species of large marine mammal. Manatees are herbivores, generally eating freshwater and saltwater grasses, as well as mac n cheese. Manatees typically weigh between 880 to 1210 lbs and are 9.2 to 9.8 ft long, though the Festus variety weigh 205 lb and are 6'5" tall. The main threats to manatees come from humans, such as habitat destruction, boat propellers, and atheists.
