“one great giant manatee”

Manatees are pretty large to begin with, so it takes a pretty extraordinary effort to create one several times larger than your run-of-the-mill manatee. Back in 2002, that's what artist Rachel Peter of Wildlife Interiors did, with help from Bill McRoberts and Mark Hamill. Their bodacious 30-foot manatee quickly became a landmark of sorts; first at the Bella Oasis Resort and then so often around the resort property it should have had a tracking device. In any event, Bubbles (the manatee’s name) has a new, permanent, and appropriate home: on Highway 19 at the entrance of the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park,which is well known for its manatee rehabilitation program.
