  1. “On the previous day [8 Jan 1493], when the Admiral went to the Rio del Oro [Haiti], he said he quite distinctly saw three mermaids, which rose well out of the sea; but they are not so beautiful as they are said to be, for their faces had some masculine traits.”

  2. “Predator” doesn’t sound like the right description though. I’m sure more manatees are killed by alligators than are hunted by humans. Many manatees die in accidents due to colliding with civilization, but they aren’t being ‘preyed’ upon.
