Sometimes people think they know you. They know a few facts about you, and they piece you together in a way that makes sense to them. And if you don’t know yourself very well, you might even believe that they are right. But the truth is, that isn’t you. That isn’t you at all.
Introduced armored suckermouth catfishes (plecos to aquarists) are scrubbing Floridian manatees of their algae growing on their skin. What impact this may have on the manatees is unknown; it could be possible the loss of algae renders the manatees less capable of thermoregulating and it’s also possible the manatees needlessly expend energy avoiding the catfish.
