The manatee, a fully aquatic marine mammal, is also called the sea cow and has been associated with maritime tales of "mermaids." (Indeed, their name derives from the Taino "manati," meaning breast.) In West Africa, it was once regarded as a sacred animal who was once human, though it probably actually evolved from a four-legged land mammal some 60+ million years ago. Its closest relatives are the elephant and the hyrax.
