Manatee Monday: Meet Rosie!

Thanks to roller man-a-tee shirt sales*, we were able to adopt Rosie the Manatee. Rosie has been living in captivity since 1968, and is one of the permanent manatees at Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. She hasn’t been released due to an equilibrium issue that causes her to swim in circles. We’ll have regular updates […]

Hey guys! We’ve sold enough t-shirts since my last donation to the Save the Manatee Club to adopt a manatee! Who would you like to adopt, blog readers? The following four are living in, or sometimes live in, Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, which I visited last November. One of these ladies we adopt could […]

Yee-haw! America! We had a pretty-low key 4th of July here at the Sour house. I’d say we had a quiet day, but we live in the city, so it was pretty freaking loud. We just weren’t the ones making the noise. Manatee decided he wanted to show his patriotic side. Drinking a beer on […]

Aw. Manatees have big hearts, literally! That’s according to a new study from the University of Florida. Happily, this news led me to google image this manatee art.   Aw.

This Manatee Monday, we have some brand-new adventures for you! My husband and I took this weekend as an opportunity to relax before I finish my book and birth our baby. Naturally, our manatee friend loves the beach, so he came along for the ride. Manatee is pretty content to hang out and look out […]

What does your dad want for Father’s Day? He probably doesn’t want a tie, and who knows what else he has, but I’ll bet he doesn’t have a manatee. You can’t buy a manatee (can you buy the wind?) but you can adopt one for your pop. Do that or get him some nice bourbon. […]

Yesterday, we took Manatee to a place where manatees don’t usually go – the top of an extinct urban volcano. It was a perfect day for a walk with our buddy. Or, in his eyes, an adventure. He doesn’t really get out much. Going slow is not a problem for manatees. They can’t even ride […]

A couple of weeks ago, a one-day-old manatee calf washed up on the beach in Puerto Rico. Luckily, she was found and taken in for rehabilitation, with the hope that she’ll be able to be released in two years. ¬†It’ll take about $17,500 to feed her for those two years. Per the Save the Manatee […]

Good job, Florida lady! If you see an orphaned manatee, call¬†someone, okay? This little guy needed help. This was kind of a stubborn baby manatee, though. It didn’t especially want to be picked up, and then it was a little confused about breathing. Babies sometimes, am I right? The little buddy is now at Sea […]

Manatee Monday: Mother’s Day

Manatee moms and calves are totally tight. If manatees had calendars, they’d probably give their moms a bunch of sea grass for Mother’s Manatee MonDay, because manatee moms are pretty nice. Manatee babies (calves) stay with their moms for one to two years, even after the babies are weaned. They hang out together, and the […]
