Why do people listen to Rush Limbaugh, is it because they are amazed by a talking manatee? by Satanic Jesus Q: I apologize. I should not have insulted manatees by comparing them to that tub of blubber.

A: Listening to a drug addict can be fun at times.

What's the name of the Veggie Tales show with the cucumber(?)singing to a stuffed manatee while he watched tv? by Karate Kid Q: It was just on last saturday. And the tomato cuts in and asks what is he doing. It was in like the silly song section. Thanks!

A: Well, I think the section is called "Silly Songs With Larry", and the song is "Barbara Manatee", IIRC. Here it is on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bF9Z6v2XXk From wikipedia: "Endangered Love" aka Barbara Manatee (King George and the Ducky) Written by Mike Nawrocki—While watching a soap opera on television, Larry sings of his love for a stuffed manatee and holding a date for this ball and all of his other noble things.

What kind of fish can be caught on the docks of lake manatee? by Q: I'm Going Tomorrow With My Friend, And My Mom I was Wondering What Types Of Fish You Can Catch From The Dock. Also How Many Alligators Hang Around The Shores?

whats the difference between a manatee and a dugong? by arasretep Q: i heard one could be called the other but then i hear they're two different things! also i heard one of them (if theyre two different things) could be called a sea cow. i researched and they look the same to me!

A: They´re relatively closely related, but the manatees are more closely knit together with each other than with the dugong. Like three brothers and one cousin. The dugong´s only `brother´ was Steller´s Sea Cow, but it has been extinct for a long time. An easy way to tell them apart is the shape of their tail. A dugong has a flipper-like tail, like a dolphin´s, while manatees have a tail that looks like a ping pong bat.

does a child net to be offically diagnosed with autism to receive Manatee co. school placement at 3? by traceandcynthia Q: Instead of going to a autistic school I wanted to place my son in Manatee co schools at 3 and soon is his evaluation. What pointers can anyone give me. and what official diagnosis does he really need. I am fearful of the official Autism label he has PDD for now. He of coarse ages out of early steps and needs continual schooling and I have heard great things about the school system. Any advice and help would be appreciated

A: A child does not qualify for special ed services just because they have a diagnosis. The child has to do an evaluation and the school has to do other things to determine if child qualifies. Here's a message board that can help -- http://www.millermom.proboards107.com/index.cgi?board=Education There are 14 categories that a child can fall under to qualify for special ed. I can't remember all of them , go to www.wrightslaw.com to find out. It doesn't matter which category he qualifies for special ed under, the school is to help with ALL problems. For example, if child qualifies for sped under 'autism', the school is to help if this child has problems in math, reading, etc.

What are some adaptions the manatee has made? by me!! Q: I'm writing a paper on the evolution and adaptions of manatees and can't find a lot of info on their adaptions. Also will you tell me what they were like before the adaption

A: manatees are about 10 feet long and weigh about 1,200 pounds. They never stop growing as long as they live! Their big lungs fill up with air when they breathe, and this air helps the heavy manatee float. (Their fat helps them float too.) Most mammal long bones have space inside to make red blood cells, but manatee bones don’t. They are solid and heavy, which helps manatees sink to the bottom to eat plants. Manatees have tough, grayish-brown, wrinkled skin that feels like an elephant’s skin. Scientists say that long ago, manatees used to live on the land and eat grass like elephants. Manatees have toenails just like an elephant too. Also, a manatee’s big nose is like a short trunk. Manatees use their nose to grab plants and pull them into their mouth - just like an elephant! Of course, manatees and elephants are very different. Since manatees live in the water today, they don’t even have back legs. Instead, they have a thick, paddle-like tail which helps them swim. Their front flippers are used for steering and digging up plants to eat. Manatees have small eyes, and can’t see far in muddy water. They can smell and hear very well. Manatees communicate by making high-pitched sounds, and leave messages by putting a scent on a rock for other manatees to find.

Am I the only one in Canada that knows what a manatee is? by VICTORIA M Q: I'm their biggest fans they are my favorite animal and I go and visit them every year @ Homassa Springs, FL. Not only are there several manatees there they are a refuge for all injured animals. Luke the Hippo is my 2nd fav. Check it out if you are ever there you won't be disappointed.

A: I touched a Manatee at St. James River. We snorkled there. They are very curious and gentle. The current forced us to face/smin into the current. The Manatees would come up behind us and "sniff" us I guess. They are huge. The hide feels like very rough and tough leather. They are very gentle and lazy but they can move with alarming speed and power. One knucklehead with us dove from the dock into the spring run right next to the Manatees and startled them. Wow does that round flipper flip! The National Park Guard yelled at him. I was embarrassed because he was with the group I was in. By the way there are probably other Canadians that know about Manatees.

Is Tropical Storm Fay going to hit manatee county? by springfairy556 Q: I live there and my mom has been watching the weather on some stations, some say yes and some say no. Right now its very windy. We're just curious does anyone have a site that we can see if its going to affect Bradenton and Sarasota?

A: It could, - but Don't worry about it. It's a fairly weak Storm, and all you're going to get out of it is a soaking Rain -no matter WHICH way it goes... :)

Can I legally do this in Manatee county? by Annoynomous A1 Q: I'm 16 and I'll be inheriting a house and money when I'm 18. The lawyer has someone mowing the lawn of my future house. Some people told me that the money paid for the mowers is coming out of my inheritence money. Is that true? If it is, could I legally buy weed killer and kill all the grass so I won't lose any more money? Sources? I'm planning on using weed killer to my future lawn so I don't have to do the extra work either.

A: Jeez dude, instead of ruining your future lawn by using poisonous chemicals to destroy it, why don't you just MOW the sucker and save the money that way???

Where can I buy a PSP and accessories the cheapest in Manatee county? by Annoynomous A4 Q: I need a PSP, a memory card that would hold about 4 games and about 200 itunes. Does the PSP come with a phone jack? Would $175 be enough to buy all this NEW? How do I set up the internet? Is it easy to get used to typing on the PSP?

A: Try craigslist for specific areas like that.

Are there any meteorology or storm chase summer programs in Manatee county? by Certified Storm Spotter SKYWARN Q: I want to be a meteorologist and a storm chaser. I'm in the 11th grade.

What taxes would I be required to pay in Manatee county? by Ron Paul 2012! Q: I'm turning 18 in March and I'll be moving out. I plan on getting a house. I know there's Real Estate tax and income tax. Are there any other taxes I'm forgetting? Sources?

A: You'll pay real estate taxes to the county, which will also cover to the school system, as well as a city or town tax if you live in one. Florida doesn't have a state income tax. So your only income tax will be federal. Also you will need homeowner's insurance, which isn't a tax, but will be necessary to obtain a mortgage. And in coastal Florida is quite expensive.

What are some good stores either in manatee county or on line where I can buy storm chasing equipment? by Jefferson Steelflex Q: stuff like protective gear for my camcorder, weather instruments, and anything else a storm chaser should have. What store or online website can I go to so I can purchase some of this equipment? Best buy said they'll have some out next month but the tropics are already active and I want to film some action when a hurricane does come here. I want equipment that are NEW!

A: The meat of hurricane season is still about a month away. Check out e-bay and get something good before its too late. Don't forget to send videos to the media, we'd like to see your footage.

Is there a way to buy a webkinz underwater room for my manatee? by mamasue Q: I have more than 10 webkinz so I don't automatically get a room, but I don't know where to go to buy an underwater room.

A: Click on the Map button and it will give you the option to buy a room. The underwater room should cost 1,000 kinz cash. The manatee is one of my favorite Webkinz. His name is Sebastian.

Is it possible that the Florida Manatee could be harmed from the BP oil spill? by Huh? Q: I don't think it would directly affect them, since they breath air, and don't have feathers, but could the oil harm their food supply? Any other endangered animals which could be affected?

A: Sadly, it would affect them directly. It could be ingested, coat their skin, get in their eyes; the possibilities are endless. Because something of this sort has never happened before, marine biologists aren't sure, but they do know that rescue efforts will be futile for many. As well, it will also affect their food supply as the BP Oil Spill has slicked an area of sea grass where Florida Manatees are abundant. In answer to your last question, yes, many other endangered animals are also being affected. These include the Brown Pelican, Sea Turtles (Kemp's ridley and Loggerhead) and North Atlantic Bluefin Tuna. Hope this helps!

What type of permit do I need to be outside filming a category 5 hurricane in Manatee county? by Annoynomous A2 Q: I'm 16 and I like to stud weather. I want to tape hurricanes on my camcorder this year. What type of permit do I need to do this, how much would it cost, and where do I buy it? I already know that if a cop sees me he'l suspect me of looting which is why I'm going to register my camcorder online before going out.

A: An examination of your head. Leave that for professionals. Go to college and study meteorology (weather) if you love it so much! Then you can do it as a professional!

If Manatees are sea cows, what does manatee milk taste like? by I need my eyes back Q: One of my goals on my bucket list is to drink 50 different types of milk I've drunk cow, goat, soy, and, of course, human. Now I want to try funky milk. So Manatee milk is next on my list. I want to know if it's worth my time.

A: Manatees are an endangered species, so the only way you'll be able to drink their milk is if you do it illegally. Also, manatees are not called sea cows because of milk ... they have the nickname because they're big and slow-moving animals that live in a marine environment. In other words: The "cow" part of the nickname: manatees are big, slow-moving, and graze for food like cows The "sea" part of the nickname: manatees live in the water

How much did they tax cigarettes and alcohol in MANATEE, FL any other taxes? by Tammy F Q: They taxed an outrageous amount. I coulld see a couple of cents but this is dollars.They taxed us smokers that much they should have this bail out thing paid for real quick.That is'nt counting the new tax on alcohol too .Does anyone Know how much they raised all of these taxes and on what?

A: I'm not sure about FL, but here in Arkansas we are talking $15.00 per carton for the cheap smokes. Marlboro is now up to $60.00 per carton. So here you have it, its only just the tip of the ice burg as to what's to come. Get used to it I guess, or be forced to quit like I have. Our rights to smoke in public places were taken away and that wasn't enough, now the only thing left is take all our money as well

How do I acquire a manatee/sea cow? by Ole Blue Q: My friends and I have wanted one since we were kids. I know its a little silly but now my friend Siobhan is really pushing for it. The thing is, Siobhan is moving away at the end of the year and so we want one last adventure. But, since she is moving away, none of us want to deal with the manatee after. Do you know where to buy or "rent" this sea cow?

A: Manatees are huge animals (900-1200 lbs., 9-10 feet long) that need warm clean water and aquatic plants to eat. You can't keep it in the bathtub. The Florida manatee is also a threatened species so you can't go out and catch one and drag it home. If you truly and honestly love manatees, you'll leave them in their natural habitat and work to keep their habitat clean and safe for them instead of trying to get one for your own greed. They have families and home bases they would miss if you took them away. You can join the save the manatee group and work to save the manatee. http://www.savethemanatee.org/ You can also adopt a dugong through http://www.worldwildlife.org/ogc/species_SKU.cfm?gid=9 Your zoo may have some sort of adoption program too.

A: Could be Gar. http://www.google.com/imgres?q=gar&um=1&hl=en&safe=off&biw=1366&bih=676&tbm=isch&tbnid=1j0pXjSkGyrR7M:&imgrefurl=http://www.flickr.com/photos/althouse/491893879/&docid=eaAqRxJ_llfWzM&w=500&h=375&ei=8DBNTvenG4vVgAfpnsnwBg&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=222&page=1&tbnh=155&tbnw=199&start=0&ndsp=17&ved=1t:429,r:8,s:0&tx=127&ty=47

What is the difference in an Australian Dugong and a Florida Manatee? by laurasmile1234 Q: And obviously, I know the location is a difference, so please no, "One lives in Australia, one lives in Florida" answers. Thanks so much to any help!!

A: "The clearest visible difference between manatees and dugongs is in the shape of the tail;[8] a manatee tail is paddle-shaped, while a dugong tail is fluked, similar in shape to a that of a whale." This is according to the Wikipedia. "The dugong is the only strictly-marine herbivorous mammal, as all species of manatee utilize fresh water to some degree." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dugong

Is it possible to get home schooling for free in Manatee county? by Certified Storm Spotter SKYWARN Q: Next year, I'm going to be a senior. I'm tired of everyone always messing with me. Would it be possible to have some one come over and teach me the same subjects I'd be taking in school for free? Sources?

A: I don't think you understand what homescholing is. The someone to teach you would be your parents, unless you hire a tutor or enroll in co-op or online, or correspondence classes. homeschooling can be done practically for free if you use the library, internet and other free resources, or it can cost thousands of dollars if want to hire private tutors and/or enroll in online classes.

If a manatee lived in the big city, what are some every day problems she may run into? by Q: I am writing a story about a manatee that moves to the city in search of a better life. What problems do you think she may face?** **Besides being out of the water

A: As a Manatee is a water based mammal it would not really survive long ,no food ,no water large enough,vehicles,chemical pollution on the ground and on road surfaces,skin problems and infections would rapidly set in ,and of course ...Humans ,not exactly the most friendly of creatures who would want to destroy it on sight.

Has a manatee ever attacked a person, and if so is there video proof? by Rebel25 Q: I could have sworn I had seen a video on tv where a manatee went after a female scuba diver's leg.

A: Not that I've ever heard of. Manatees are herbivores, I highly doubt they would have much interest in chomping off a woman's leg.

Does anyone know any quick and delicious Manatee recipes? by FlounderingFishy Q: I'm going down to Florida for vacation next week. I did not know that Manatee was illegal to catch and eat. They look so big and meaty. I guess it's just fishing for me then.

A: Manatee's are protected. You can't eat them. Legal Status/Protection West Indian manatees in the United States are protected under federal law by the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 which make it illegal to harass, hunt, capture, or kill any marine mammal. West Indian manatees are also protected by the Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act of 1978. Violations of these federal or state laws can be met with civil or criminal convictions associated with monetary fines and/or imprisonment. Endangered Species Act (ESA): The manatee is listed as endangered. IUCN Red List: The manatee is listed as endangered.

How can I reduce or eliminate my taxes in Manatee county? by Annoynomous A1 Q: If I paid off the mortgage, would that eliminate my property tax or just reducde it? What can I do to reduce it by a lot? What about all the other taxes we are required to pay?

A: Paying off your mortgage would have no impact on your property tax. Your property tax is based on the assessed value of the property (whether or not it is encumbered by a mortgage). Unless you are successful in challenging your assessed value, or the property tax rate is reduced in Manatee County, you will be unable to reduce your property tax. You may get a little relief due to the recently enacted increase to the homestead exemption.

What is the best side dish to go with manatee? by teeyodi Q: My brother hit one with his boat yesterday and we don't want the meat to go to waste. Is it cooked more like seafood or beef? A1 sauce or cocktail sauce?

A: if you eat manatee you should go to hell. they are beautiful animals

what is different about a manatee from a dugong? by Q: I was watching a vidoe about a suposed mermaid and it said it was most likely a dugong and they went and filmed a dugong and said then that if it was not it then it a manatee or seacow which I thought was excienct but I thought manatees and dugongs were the same animal but named different because people from different countries called them different things as for the sea cow are the even alive now?

A: There are four sirenians in the world; three manatees in the family Trichechidae - Trichechus inunguis, T. manatus and T. senegalensis; and the dugong (family Dugongidae) - Dugong dugon. Another sirenian, Steller's sea cow, Hydrodamalis gigas, was discovered in 1741 and slaughtered to extinction in 27 years. The manatees all live in the Caribbean and in south American rivers. The dugongs are found in the archipelagoes of southeast Asia and northern Australia into the Pacific.

What sort of legal trouble in Manatee county could I get into for bringing pills to school? by Annoynomous A2 Q: These are over the counter and prescription pills. None of them illegal. I need these pills when I get a headache or have a cold. The school has a rule that says to leave it in the clinic. I like to have them handy especially if it's a really bad headache. When I need them, I want to take them right away instead of walking to the clinic and waiting in line. What tpe of trouble could I get into? Sources? I'm not going to be giving any one my pills because it says right on the bottle it's illegal.

A: You could be expelled if theres a zero tolerance policy.

Can you buy a live manatee on the internet? by Confused Hikari Q: I really want to buy one so I can finally find out what manatee meat tastes like. I really want to make the species extinct so please help.

A: Im pretty sure you can. As an acclaimed zoologist Im sure I can pull a few strings for you. Yet the pay has to be good.

How do I buy a manatee? by Matt K Q: Say I own an aquarium--not a personal 10 gallon fish tank mind you, but an actual sea-world style aquarium. Suppose money is no object and my only requirement is that the transaction is fully legal (in the US). Where do I go to get a manatee? This is purely academic. I have no actual interest in obtaining a manatee.

A: You cant within the USA. Manatee are not keep in captivity unless hurt or injuried. Onced they recover from wounds or illness they are relaesed. The young can not be seperated from their mothers for about 2 years. There is a program called the Manatee Rehabilitation Partnership from the Sea Shore Alliance. They have approval from all state and federal agencies that deal with these mammals, to keep track of wild manatee, capture, killed or injured. Their main responsibility is to monitor released manatee. So if you wanted a manatee in the USA you would have to go through them first. There are many state and federal laws that protect manatee. It would be difficult to obtain a wild speciem even if you had all the correct permits with the facility. Are you aware of what it takes to keep such an animal alive?

What's the amount of a fine for injuring a manatee? by donna Q: Or any manatee information. I need it for a school paper.

Are there any meteorology centers I can work at in Manatee county, Florida? by Jefferson Steelflex Q: or close to there? Any colleges in Manatee county that offer meteorology degrees? How about online?

A: You could work for news stations, government, or private industries. Don't try earning your degree because there is a lot of material you need to learn in the classroom. Here is a link to meteorology degrees offered in the United States: http://www.srh.noaa.gov/jetstream/nws/careers.htm

What do i have to do to become a Manatee Wild life biologist? by Dianne M Q: right now I'm pursuing a degree in biology, but what do i have to study afterwards to become a manatee biologist? P.S. I live in the Caribbean

A: If you want to do something that specific you are probably going to have to get a Master's or PhD. Most likely a PhD. A graduate degree is very different than a Bachelor's. It is school where you go to further your education in research, not really focused on classes. Though you will take a few classes, your main business will be working on your thesis and gathering data. I suggest you try and get as many internship experiences as you can during your undergraduate years. Having a good background in research by the time you graduate undergrad is a good stepping stone into graduate school, since getting in is similar to a job application. Make sure to visit your universitiy's career center to get a plan going for applying to graduate school. You are going to want to take the GRE (Graduate Record Examination) and get your applications in at a respectable time. These will take a while to complete so make sure to have a good timeline set up for your Junior and Senior year of college. Check out the two sites I have listed for internship opportunities and research positions around the country. To find a graduate school that deals with what you want to study, don't look at the programs! What is more important is looking at the faculty and what their research interests are. As a graduate student you will find one professor amongst the faculty to be your adviser, what their research interests are will be a good indicator of the type of project they will have you work on for your thesis, the completion of which will lead to you receiving your degree. To find faculty, search for schools online (most likely coastal schools will have marine mammal programs and researchers) and look for links to their biology or zoology departments. Then search for faculty, their research focus should be listed alongside any personal info they choose to put up as well. Send them emails for more information, some may be helpful in guiding you in the right direction. They've been in your spot before, they've obviously been to grad school too, they know what it's like.

What kind of fish or animal besides a manatee eat Turtle Grass in the coral reefs? by Qwert Q Q: What kind of fish or animals besides a manatee eat Turtle Grass in the coral reefs?

A: Direct grazing on seagrasses is limited to a number of species, e.g., sea turtles, parrotfish, surgeonfish, sea urchins and perhaps pinfish. Other grazers, e.g., the queen conch, scrape the algae present on seagrass leaves Turtle grass = Thalassia testudinum -m-

A: the only place you can actually swim with a manatee in the wild is crystal river fl.. there is a place called three sisters springs and thats where they go in the winter.. they swarm the warm waters of the spring. it is the only legal place u can hop in and touch them.. its really cool.. there r places all around crystal river where you can rent a boat or canoe and go about 20 minuts to the three sisters spring and you can enter the spring and jump in.. its so clear and beautiful.. i rent from port mariana hotel.. they have many different kinds of boats to rent,, i like canoes..i just went there sunday.. but thats the best place to swim with several manatees..

A: Some species went totally extinct.

Is a dugong and a manatee the same animal or closely related? by Einstein Q: I happened upon an episode of Manswers on Spike tv in which they stated a dugong is the animal that is closest to feeling like being inside a woman (bestiality). I never heard of such an animal but they look a lot like a manatee and are even nicknamed "sea-cow just like a manatee. So, are they in fact the same animal just found in different waters?

A: They are not the same animal but do belong to the same order - Sirenia. Sirenia only has Dugongs (1 species) and Manatees (3 species). I only know of the Manatee being called a Sea Cow, not the Dugong - perhaps the confusion and origin comes from the fact that the Dugong's closest relative was actually the now extinct Steller's Sea Cow. These were huge animals, much larger than Dugongs and Manatees and probably exceeded 30 ft long !

What is the maximum penalty for a 16year old in Manatee county for jay walking? by Annoynomous A1 Q: The lights on Manatee Avenue are so slow. I make sure there's no cars close by or make sure they're all stopped and walk across the street before the light turns green. If I get caught, what could be my punishment?

A: There is no penalty for jay-walking. Everyone jay walks as long as you're being safe and not obnoxious like some your fine! :] the police can't really do anting other then telling people "not to do it." unless they disrupt the peace or traffic. You're good! :D

What degree/major would i have to get to become a manatee rescuer/rehabilitator? by flowerchild Q: I want to become a manatee rescuer/rehabilitator similar to the people at seaworld who help the manatees. Would my major in college be aquatic biology, marine science, or something else? Also, would i get my bachelors degree in science? Any other information you have about this career would be helpful as well. Thanks! :D

If you adopt a manatee, are you allowed to visit it? What are the details of adopting a manatee? by allisoncolaianni Q: PLEASE READ BELOW! I am thinking of adopting a manatee as a manatee lover! But, I'm not so sure about the consequences about adopting one. What exactly happens? Can you even meet it or visit it? Do I have to provide for it myself?

A: I have adopted 7 manatees in the past. Sometimes they will let you pick your manatee out of a catalouge of sorts, other times they are randomly assigned. You will get an adoption certificate, picture, and story of the manatee you choose, but your money will go to helping all of the manatees. You can visit the manatees at one of several sites in Florida during manatee season. Your particular manatee may not be there but if you call ahead to the park sometimes they can tell you how many manatees are in or not. You will also get a discounted ticket to the park if you adopt one. Its really fun and it helps the environment.
