When you see the Dugong, you will remember it. It does not resemble any other animal in the see and is only found in the Red Sea, Japan, the Philippines, East Africa, and Australia.
They can live for over 70 years and grow to almost twice the size of an adult, weighing up to 2000lbs. To sustain that weight, it eats 88lbs of sea grass a day! And their lungs run along their backs to help them float.
