I watch a local documentary film and they featured the “dugong” in Davao Gulf. I thought “dugong” is not true. I thought it’s just an imagination. I know about “dugong” in the teleserye entitled “Marina” of ABS-CBN.

I googled the internet about this..

The Dugong (sometimes refered to as a “Seacow”) is a mammal, that is, it suckles its young.
Dugongs are large grey mammals which spend their entire lives in the sea. Though Acquatic it breathes air through lungs and has live babies not eggs like fish
Dugongs swim by moving their broad spade-like tail in an up and down motion, and by use of their two flippers.
