The Big Steller's Sea Cow

The Steller's Sea Cow was discovered in 1741, sadly twenty years later because of all the hunting of this animal it became extinct. It's scientific name is Hydrodamalis Gigas. It lives in the north Pacific in an Arctic Tundra. It is a huge herbivore that is about eight to nine meters. It's enemies are large sharks and humans. Since it is so big and it doesn't have many predators it is defenseless. The Steller's Sea Cow is closely related to a manatee and they look almost identical.
