    The earliest the manatee could get pregnant would be in 5 years, which
    would be in the year 2002. She would have 13 month pregnancy which
    would mean her first calf would be born in the year 2003. Then two more
    years before she could pregnant and 13 months to have a calf puts the
    time to 2006. By the year 2009 she could be having her third calf.
