Manatees Hugh and Buffett are science stars. As long-term residents of Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium, they are trained to participate in their own health care - such as giving a voluntary blood sample or being weighed - along with innovative research projects focused on manatee senses and physiology. Their lead trainer and caregiver, Mote Aquarium senior biologist Kat Boerner, explains why manatees are interesting, important and just plain weird. Hosts Joe and Hayley have different reactions when they learn how manatees got their name.
