Biology[]

A dugong grazing.

Dugong is the only dugongid species alive, and one of the two that survived the Holocene along with Steller's sea cow, a cold-water relative that became extinct in 1768. Dugongs live in coastal waters of the Indo-Pacific. They're related and are very similar to manatees but unlike manatees, they're omnivorous and have peg-like molar teeth, to open crustaceans' shells, dugongs also have a whale-like tail in opposition to manatees' round tails. Like manatees, dugongs have a sharply downturned snout which they both use to graze benthic seagrass. They eat 70 pounds of seagrass daily.
