Florida Manatee Skull
Manatees are more closely related to elephants, hyraxes and aardvarks than to seemingly similar cetaceans (whales and dolphins). With a torpedo-like shape, they average 10 feet long and weigh around 1,000 lbs. They have two agile front paddle-like forelimbs, a broad fin-like tail, and powerful upper lips, which they use to forage through sediment and maneuver food. Large, docile animals, manatees live in warm coastal waters and estuaries and are endangered due to changes in climate, commercial exploitation, subsistence hunting and, most recently, propeller boat injuries.
All parts of the replica skull, including the inside of the braincase, are included. Auditory bulas and other parts are individually cast and installed.
2-part skull (separate cranium & jaw).
Size: 13" Long, 8 1/2" Wide, 7 1/2" High
