The west indian manatee (scientific name Trichechus manatus) one of the three endangered manatee species. Manatees (also called sea cows) are large aquatic mammals, and the largest was the extinct Steller's sea cow (Hydrodamalis gigas), as you can tell by its scientific name, gigas being Latin for "giant". In this set I have made a minifigure model of a west indian manatee. Its whole body except the head is posable, and it has a display stand of its natural environment. I think this would make a great set because it is both well known and accurate, but I just built it for fun.
(P.S.: despite how it looks in the second picture, it is not trying to eat a fish. Manatees eat sea grass.)
