    Challenge Question #5
    "How do you think Ranger Hartley identifies the individual
    manatees swimming at the hot springs?"

    Answer: I think that there are tags on the manatees and each
    tag is different. Some manatees have scars on them from boats
    so that helps. Also, Ranger Hartley has seen them so often
    that he can tell the difference between each manatee.
