It's been a catastrophically bad year for Florida's manatees, but they are still out in force at Central Florida's Blue Spring State Park right now.

Webcams trained on manatee stomping grounds show massive amounts of the floating potatoes and state symbols vibing in the stable waters of the spring as winter continues.
The park reported more than 600 manatees in their waters today, which Save The Manatee calls a new record.
If you want to see what they're getting up to down there, an underwater cam is also available.
