    I enjoyed reading the kissa about the origin of the sea-cow. I am not a marine biologist so I really don't know the difference between a manatee and a sea-cow. However, I have always thought that the more proper term for the duyung is the sea-cow. I have seen a duyung when I was growing up in Siasi. I have also seen it butchered because it was dying and the people wanted to make use of the meat. It was one of the most unforgettable experiences of my childhood.

      You are correct Sir Tan. I guess dugong may be the English word for the species but it is sometimes called sea cow. I will make the appropriate changes.

    "Dugong" is Cebuano, Tibo'. "Duyung" is Tausug and Sinama.
