This very hungry Florida manatee snacks on some Spanish moss from a tree branch in the Three Sisters Springs National Wildlife Refuge in Crystal River, Florida. During the winter wild manatees gather here to stay warm in the 72 degree waters. Since manatees eat 10% of their body weight a day, this one gorges himself as fast as he can!
