Whole Lotta Blorpin’ Goin’ On

6a010535647bf3970b01a3fd2121a5970b-800wiAccording to ZooBorns, “On April 24, France’s ZooParc de Beauval welcomed a male Manatee who weighed 55 pounds at birth!” And look at THAT SMILE!

Also quoting ZB: “All three species of Manatees (South American, West Indian, and West Africa) are listed as Vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.”

    I just looked up the word “blorp” in my Funk& Wagnall’s and sure enough, there was a picture of a manatee. That same picture appeared under the word “adorable.” :)
