Dugong: Andaman’s State Animal

Not many know that Dugong also known as ‘the sea cow’ is Andaman and Nicobar’s state animal.While during my stay in the islands in the last 3 years, I have not been able to spot a Dugong anytime, I did find its model at Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park, Wandoor, Port Blair.Here is the picture:

Here is a brief description of the animal that is written on a board there.

If any of you have any information about Dugong or have a picture then please feel free to share with me. I would be happy to post the picture here.
