Two young manatees seek refuge from the cold.

Satellite Beach, Florida, USA.

Some chilly weather earlier this month found a sizeable herd of West Indian manatees (Trichechus manatus) congregating near the relatively warm outflow of a large drainage pipe just off DeSoto Parkway in Satellite Beach. The smaller manatee, who likely was born over the summer, quickly became a favorite with the small crowd that gathered to watch.
