manatee \man`a*tee"\, n. [Sp. manat['i], from the native name in
Haiti. Cf. Lamantin.] (Zo["o]l.)
Any species of Trichechus, a genus of sirenians; -- called
also sea cow. [Written also manaty, manati.]
Note: One species (Trichechus Senegalensis) inhabits the
west coast of Africa; another (Trichechus Americanus)
inhabits the east coast of South America, and the
West-Indies. The Florida manatee (Trichechus latirostris
) is by some considered a distinct species,
by others it is thought to be a variety of Trichechus Americanus
. It sometimes becomes fifteen feet or more
in length, and lives both in fresh and salt water. It
was hunted for its oil and flesh, and every species is
now an endangered species.
