A Visiting Dugong 17/12/07

This Dugong has become a frequent visitor to a couple of our dive site recently.
It has even been practicing fin pivots with a couple of Open Water Students. Dugongs are large grey mammals which spend their entire lives in the sea. Fully grown, they may be three metres long and weigh 400 kilograms. They have nostrils near the top of their snouts. Dugongs swim by moving their broad spade-like tail in an up and down motion, and by use of their two flippers. Dugongs’ only hairs are the bristles near the mouth.
