      I wonder if this makes devilfish the first Zoochatter to have seen all the sirenians? (If one excludes the dodgy Dwarf Manatee of course).
    • devilfish
      Sadly not. African manatees keep managing to escape me. I've seen the other three on multiple occasions, as well as plenty of young Amazonians (which are effectively dwarf manatees, apparently :p)
    • Chlidonias
      oh, I thought you'd have seen Africans at some point. So we are still equal then (with me not having seen any Amazonians).

      I wonder if anyone else here has seen all the species then.

      I've also seen all but Africans :(

      Devilfish, you're not brazilian, right? (I am)
    • devilfish
      Hi Felipe, you're right - I'm not. I was born in Egypt but grew up in England. :)

      And today I got the full set, with a visit to Toba Aquarium. Hopefully I'll see another Amazonian soon too. ;)

      Last month I completed my set at Toba Aquarium as well! Thanks for both the Amazonian and African tips @devilfish!
