so i'm up late, and i was watching georgia public television (because i don't have cable, and it's the best channel i get), and about half an hour ago a show about manatees came on and i was like "omfg! how cute! omg i'm going to fucking die from cuteness!!!" because they were feeding a little baby manatee with a bottle and !!!!!!!!! so cute.
in case you didn't know me this well, while i love crabs, my first animal love belongs to manatees. i sleep with a flattened manatee pillow named colin (and mr humples. and no i'm not ashamed that i'm in my 20s and still sleep with stuffed animals.) and i have tons of stuffed manatees (as opposed to one stuffed crab that isn't even mine really, long story).
i wish they were small enough that i could put it in my bathtub with lots of tiny potted plants to eat. i would so love it forever!!! <3
they're so dumpy and sad looking! i wanna cuddle them until they get all happy.
okay, i sound like a complete loser.
I LOVE MANATEES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3
I loves them goooood. They're possibly one of my favourite animals (along with penguins, orcas, dolphins, axolotls etc.). They're just so dopey and adorable. One day imma getting me a job working with them. Yes, Yes I am.
Where can I get a stuffed manatee from?
it's rare that i find them. i've found some at disney, and seaworld (but that doesn't really help you since you're not near florida), and i got my pillow at walmart, actually.
sometimes my family will run across them in toy stores and buy them for me, too.
i also have a manatee shirt that a friend of mine airbrushed for me, and manatee earrings.
Ahh you're so cute ^_^ I once swam with manatees on a school trip. It scared the shit out of me! They look cute from far away, but to me, they're huge and scary up close. I thought one was going to get mad at me for trying to touch it and like try to kill me. I was so, so scared >.
i've had the opportunity to go swimming with them out in the wild, but that fell through. i've only gotten to pet some, in captivity and in the wild.
!!!! i'd kill to get to swim with them though. and i highly doubt they would try to kill you, unless you were covered in lettuce or something.
when i was little i slept with every one of my stuffed animals in a pile.
i was scared if i left one out that it would come alive at night (i thought all my animals came alive at night) and would be pissed because it wasn't with everyone else and kill me in my sleep.
