Manatees are found along tropical coastlines on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean and in the Amazon Basin.
Dugongs are found off of coastal eastern Africa, along the shores of the Indian Ocean, and on the northern coast of Australia.
Although the distribution and basic biology of crayfish is slowly gaining more attention, little is known about the distributions, habitat requirements, and conservation threats of most species of North American crayfish (Schuster, 1997; Taylor et al., 2007).
In order to more thoroughly understand the biology of freshwater crayfish, effective sampling methods need to be developed.
Steller's sea cows represent the largest known members of , weighed approximately 150 kg, extant sirenians often weigh between 400 to 1,500 kg.
is a small order, composed of just two extant families, Dugongidae and Trichechidae, with four current species.
Family Trichechidae includes three species: West Indian manatees (Trichechus manatus), African manatees (Trichechus senegalensis), and Amazonian manatees (Trichechus inunguis).
Except, that is, when it comes to women of sub-Saharan African descent.
An odd quirk of nature that occurs throughout the world.
