The Dugong are often seen in couple or pair, and rarely as large groups. This is due to their feeding habits on seagrass that do not support big population. However, in some rare occasions, it is possible to find them gathering by hundreds. They communicate through chirps, whistles, barks, and other sounds that echo underwater. They have a poor eyesight and use their smell to identify edible plants and constant physical contact with their calves. They spend most of their live at an average of 10 meters deep, and even though they are considered as shy, it is easy to dive with them. They hold their breath for about 2 and a half minutes before heading back to the surface. This fascinating animal does not have fully known behavior and remain mysterious in many ways!
