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.”

So Who’s Gonna Win The SB?

Everyone has an opinion. What do U say there, Grumpy Cat?

Peyton the Penguin from the Omaha Zoo has made his pick pretty clear.

Hugh and Buffett have made their choices, too.

[Excuse me...Hugh and Buffett? Sounds like an FM morning show. -Ed.]

Well, they’re Manatees, naturally.

Wanna Cuddle A Manatee?

This fellow had the opportunity to! Quoting the YouTube text, “WPBF 25 engineer Jay Darden spent his Thanksgiving weekend swimming with a Manatee in the Crystal River near Tampa, where he got up close and personal with the sea cow.”

Watch when they cuddle! Cuddling a Manatee! Get OUT!

POLL: Who’s Blorpier?

[Or is it "Blorpiest?" -Ed]

To tell the truth, I think it’s the Manatee in a landslide, but the Hippo is awful cute. Have at it.
