2014: The Year of the Manatee

In the book Deadly Waters, author Gloria Skurzynski, compares manatee to giant potatoes.

These creatures are so ugly, they’re adorable.

Every year seems to be devoted to a different animal: sea turtles, black bears, moose, killer whales, grizzly bears. Last year was the year of the manatee, starting last January at Fanning Springs State Park and then at Blue Springs, Homasassa Springs, Wakula Springs, and finally swimming with them at Crystal River.

I wonder what animal will dominate 2015?
