Betsy the manatee

Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park has welcomed Betsy the manatee back home. She was born at the park on Oct. 19, 1990, and weighed from 60 to 70 pounds at birth. Betsy was transferred in November 2010 to the Cincinnati Zoo in Ohio for its manatee exhibit and had been there for seven years. With the return of Betsy, the park — which is also a rehabilitation center for injured and orphaned manatees — will now be home to four resident manatees. She is shown here being transported to a special enclosure.
