Inscription.  
Manatees can communicate
with each other by making
squeaks, chips and squeals.


Most manatee communications occur between a mother and her calf. Perhaps you will hear a mother manatee calling her calf if they become visually separated. Manatees also vocalize during times of play, mating and when alarmed.

Also see . . .  Manatee Communication. Manatees are very social animals and they communicate quite often with each other. They communication is very often when a female is caring for her young. However, adults are also seen communicating in various ways with each other. The males seem to be more active in this aspect of things during the mating season.
