Baby Manatee 'Yawn' Caught On Camera (VIDEO)

We were already blown away with adorable manatees high-fiving, scratching their bottoms, and napping, but the sight of a sleepy baby manatee yawning is likely the cutest thing we will ever, ever witness.

In the below video, at 30 seconds, a manatee calf in Florida's Crystal River appears to yawn for several seconds bringing its little flippers up to its mouth -- just like we do!

Can the air-breathing mammals really yawn underwater? Whatever it's up to, the baby manatee's adorable expression is an incredible thing to see.

You may notice that the snorklers in the video touch the calf, even though harassing or molesting manatees is illegal in Florida, especially coming between a baby and its mother.

However, some manatee tours will allow visitors a gentle pat if the manatees approach swimmers themselves.
