You can request a specific manatee with the format //place.manatee.lc/x/200/300.svg where "x" is the number of your favorite specimen(s). Numbers 1-15 are valid.

Content warning! Our vector art is bit "different" what you might expect. Our art is practiced by programmers who doesn't have any real talent of drawing anything but diagrams.

Warning! While our vectorized manatees are not vulnerable to extinction the Vector and rest of his photorealistic comrades are. 2013 was the deadliest year ever for florida's manatees.
