From Wikipedia, "Studies suggest Florida manatees must have some access to fresh water for proper osmoregulation."

The New River where this photo was taken has a significant tidal range and its water is brackish.

Fascinating! Whodathunk a manatee would get thirsty? I don't think dolphins or whales do.
