Biology Edit

Dugong grazing

A dugong grazing.

Dugong is the only dugongid species alive, and one of the two that survived the Holocene along with Steller's sea cow. that became extinct in 1768. Dugongs live in coastal waters of the Indo-Pacific. They're related and are very similar to manatees but unlike manatees, they're omnivorous and have peg-like molar teeth, to open crustaceans' shells, dugongs also have a whale-like tail in opposition to manatees' round tails. Like manatees, dugongs have a sharply downturned snout which they both use to graze benthic seagrass. They eat 70 pounds of seagrass daily.
