dugong only in the Philippines

The “dugong,” or sea cow, is also known as “duyong” or “baboy-dagat.” It has a long and round grayish-brown body with small flippers and a whale-like tail. These warm-blooded mammals are slow swimmers and move along coasts and between islands. The “dugong” subsists on seagrass. Although close to extinction, a small number can be found in the shallow waters of Palawan Province, Romblon Island, Guimaras Island, and Pujada Bay in Davao Oriental.
