This is a fun post. Always wondered where some of these names came from.
Mine, Manatee, is simple. My very favorite mammal. They are such a gentle, loving creature. I had the once of a lifetime chance to swim out in the wild with them, what an experience. I can still feel the wiskers of one gentle giant as he kissed all over my face. I grew up in south Florida and always admired them and their family devotion. When ever 2 manatees come together, they always embrace.
