Find out the favorite foods of Hugh and Buffett, our resident manatees, as we visit them during feeding time. We use our portable distance learning studio to get you up close from atop our 75,000 gallon habitat. This tour is focused on manatee husbandry at Mote. You talk with our aquarium biologist and learn about these amazing marine mammals. We review the history of manatee research at Mote then watch them get feed. We end with a Question and Answer session with our Ocean Experts.
