Oh the Hu-manatee!

Occurred: January 17, 2013 / Three Sisters Spring, Crystal River, Florida, USA

Info from Licensor: "I posted this clip but I did not see the manatee's erection until it was pointed out later! This experience stands out as one of my favorite wildlife encounters to date. The manatees are so friendly, and genuinely seem to appreciate your company. They eagerly seek out belly-rubs and scratches in the same way my dog does. Unfortunately, I also saw scars on the backs of nearly every manatee in the springs. The animals get hurt or killed from run-ins with boats in the Florida waterways. Only 5,000 or so of these amazing animals remain in the wild."
