Went to the Homosassa Springs Wild Life State Park again this morning... It is interesting to note that the manatee, along with the hippo and the alligator, has an up-turned or top-mounted set of nostrils and can and does often expose only that above the water level to grab a lung full of air. In this picture, it is further refined to the use of a single nostril. Note the other one is closed.
