Manatees in Florida are doing whatever they can to stay warm with temperatures dipping throughout the Sunshine State Monday.

At Tampa Electric's Big Bend Power Station in Apollo Beach, dozens of manatees gathered in the discharge canal.

Manatees at Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River were also hoping that keeping close would keep them warm.
