It was a rare sighting in Lake County.
A gentle sea cow is attracting crowds in Eustis. The manatee has been seen several times swimming and feeding along the shoreline of Trout Lake.
Wildlife experts say they aren't sure why it’s here but they said the adult manatee had to pass through at least three navigational locks to arrive in the lake.
Officials say the mild winter has probably helped the manatee stay warm because they usually migrate south for the winter.
