|Manatee of Helena|
An artist's depiction
The Manatee of Helena is a cryptid believed to have once inhabited the coast of St. Helena, an island supposed to be largely populated by manatees during the days of colonization.
The creature was described as resembling a normal manatee. Unlike known manatee species, however, Helena manatees were semi-aquatic, often coming onto land like seals.
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- An undiscovered species (a Cryptid)
- A hoax
- An elephant seal
- There is no evidence to prove its existence, and only two eye-witness accounts have been reported.
