According to Wikipedia, Manatees are large, fully aquatic, mostly herbivorous marine mammals sometimes known as sea cows. There are three accepted living species of Trichechidae, representing three of the four living species in the order Sirenia: the Amazonian manatee, the West Indian manatee, and the West African manatee.

Sharing the video, he wrote ;

All households in the community usually get a share of the meat.

Congratulations sir.
