  • A. Their large body size
  • B. Their poor vision 
  • C. Their inability to echolocate
  • D. The rate of water flow in their habitat 
  • E. The level of visibility in their habitat

  • C. They are useful only during a limited period of a manatee’s life. 
  • D. They are located only on the manatees’ faces. 

5. What can be inferred about the recent research into manatees’ hair follicle sinuses?

  • A. The research explains why manatees can survive on land as well as under water
  • B. The research returned contradictory findings.
  • C. The research has led scientists to search for hair follicle sinuses on other marine mammals.
