Manatee coloring pages feature the gentle giants of the sea, often referred to as “sea cows.” These serene marine mammals are herbivores, grazing on underwater vegetation in shallow coastal areas and rivers. Manatees are found in warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean, particularly along the coastlines of the southeastern United States, the Caribbean, and parts of the Amazon Basin.

What Colors Should I Paint Manatee?

Manatees are most commonly a grayish-brown color, with their bodies occasionally covered in a thin layer of algae, which can add a greenish tint. When coloring manatees, using various shades of gray and adding subtle green can create a realistic appearance. Their gentle eyes and distinctive, whiskered snouts can be highlighted to capture their docile nature.
