Spring's gone but manatee love still in the air

Nothing draws a crowd like a little manatee love.

Onlookers have been flocking to the Courtney Campbell Causeway to watch a group of frolicking manatees that have been, well, frolicking. The manatees have been mating in the shallow water near the causeway.

According to the Save the Manatee organization, a manatee cow gives birth to one calf every two to five years.
