The dugong in the Red Sea looks like a prehistoric sea cow. The dugon is lazy, slow, large and gentle. It does no harm. It’s absolutely not aggressive.

A dugong’s favourite hangout are beds of seagrass in slow-motion. This is where you will find it hovering through the water in slow motion.

Did you know our grey friends are herbivores and eat some 50 kilograms daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dugongs stay under water for a short period of time. They surface for oxygen every three to five minutes. A mature dugong is a giant who measures some four metres in length and weighing up to almost 600 kilo’s.
