I was lucky to find this Dugong (Dugong dugon) feeding alone. I carefully approached it and could get some pics without disturbing.

    Victim of the unfortunate problem of taxonomic lethargy, just like the Bison (Bison Bison). Great shot though.

  • But they never get a heart attack :-) Thank you Stuart.
