WATCH: Manatee makes snack of man's leg near Crystal River

- A juvenile manatee tried to make a snack of a swimmer's leg near Plantation Adventure Center and the swimmer caught the cuteness on camera. 

Plantation Adventure Center posted video taken by its Captain John of a baby manatee trying to nibble on his leg as he stood in the water. It happened in the waters of Kings Bay, fed by the Crystal River. 

It's a location manatees are known to frequent. 

In the video, some green plants can be seen around the swimmer's leg, which is likely what the little mammal was after. After about 20 seconds, the manatee seems to give up and starts to swim away.
