They also had a low breathing frequency and minute ventilation, and high O₂ extraction and CO₂ output. The mean core temperatures (Tc) of two Amazonian manatees (Trichechus inunguis) were ± C (X ± SD) and ± C at ambient water temperatures (Tw = 27–29 C).

Based on metabolic rate (MR), the lower critical water temperature (TLC) of the larger manatee was C. Above TLC, Tc varied with Tw, but the animal maintained Tc below TLC.
