Watch This Guy's Excited Reaction After Spotting Rare Manatee Twins
A Florida tour guide saw two baby manatees swimming with their mother in the wild.
Gene Parker, tour guide and owner of Snorkel with Manatees, spotted a momma manatee with her newborn twins in Homosassa Springs, Florida, and he could barely contain his excitement.
He posted the video on Facebook writing that in 15 years of working in those waters, he's never seen newborn twins in the wild. The sighting is extremely rare. On average one calf is born every two to five years and according to Citrus County, only two percent of manatees give birth to twins.
