A cute video has emerged of a manatee looking at a man through his see-through canoe in St Petersburg, FL, USA.

The footage, shot on June 9, shows the manatee sticking its face against the transparent plastic of the canoe, appearing to try and eat it.

"While canoeing in the See Through Canoe in St Pete, Florida, this exceptionally friendly manatee came up to the canoe and spent about 30 minutes chasing the canoe playfully," the filmer wrote online.

"When I tried to leave he followed me for about a half mile, all the way to the site I launched the canoe from," he added.
