Manatees are sometimes called sea cows, because they are very similar to those land animals. They are docile creatures and very slow eaters, hence the moniker.

Unlike land cows, manatees are very curious beasts, which has been the cause of so many fatalities in the past. They have been known to approach vessels in the water, breach and inspect the objects, even with humans present.

With that said, it should not be a surprise to watch this video. A wild manatee rolls over and enjoys a refreshing drink and belly scratch while being sprayed by a garden hose off the coast in Florida.

Check out this adorable manatee wanting some belly rubs!
