There's only one way to feed a hungry baby manatee - and that's to get into the water to give it a bottle.
Staff at this sea life centre have been getting up close to two of these marine creatures which are being hand-reared.
The two little calves were mysteriously abandoned by their mothers off the coast of Central Florida. Scroll down for more...
Hand reared: A manatees being bottle fed by an expert at SeaWorld, in Orlando, Florida
Locals spotted one of the creatures bobbing on its own near a place called Sebastian, and another further along the shore at Melbourne.
Experts at SeaWorld, Orlando, have not been able to work out why the little babies were both separated from their mothers.
They are just a few months old and are just two and a half feet long and weigh 60 pounds.
The little calves, who have not yet been named, were picked up by rescue teams from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission.
Now dedicated SeaWorld staff are feeding the sea creatures milk from a bottle every three hours day and night.
"It is lucky they managed to survive the journey back to the centre," said SeaWorld spokeswoman Lauren Skowyra. Scroll down for more...

"Our manatees are very popular with visitors.
"But these will be cared for until they are strong enough to be released back into the wild."
The babies will need to grow much bigger before they will be able to survive for themselves in the sea.
They would normally stay with their mothers for up to two years before they are fully weaned. Once the little sea creatures are fully grown they will reach up to 13 feet long and weigh 85 stones.
