Manatee cuddles with snorkeler's flipper



CITRUS COUNTY, Fla. - A snorkeler in Citrus County got a little under-the-sea love from a manatee.

The manatee seemed attracted to the swimmer's flippers.

The 8-foot-long manatee held on to the swimmer's leg and caressed the flipper.

The manatee eventually swam away.
