“Dugongs are marine animals that only eat plants. They can hold their breath for up to 6 minutes.
Dugongs’ natural habitat is shallow and protected coastal waters (close to land). They are mostly found in south-east Asia, in about 37 different countries.
They are about 295cm long. You can estimate a dugong’s age by counting how many rings they have on their tusks, just like a tree. Amazing? I know!
