Mare Nostrum: the Mucca di Mare

Yesterday evening while praying the holy rosary atop some rocks in the sea with some friends suddenly this beast swam by.  Harmless and truly amazing to watch, Italians call it a "cow of the sea." 


  1. What's the English name for that? Mucca di mare is just "sea cow". In the US, "sea cow" refers to a manatee (a mammal), but this creature seems somehow smaller and more fish-like.
