WATCH: Manatee pushes transparent canoe

Manatees are known to be friendly and gentle, but rarely ever pushy.

On Saturday, the owner of See Through Canoe, Mark Freels, and friend, Michael McCarthy, went canoeing together. While they were out, a manatee began pushing Freels’ canoe for a while.

Video captures the manatee using its snout to shove the transparent canoe, but did it ever so slowly.
