River Safari keepers struggle with a manatee named Pedro as they lead him onto a canvas sheet used to lift him out of the water to take him to a new enclosure on March 13, in Singapore.

More than 20 zookeepers and veterinarians moved seven manatees from their previous home at the Singapore Zoo to the larger 'Amazon Flooded Forest' exhibit, in Singapore on Wednesday, according to Wildlife Reserves Singapore. The sea cows' new chomping ground is four times larger than their previous home and is also the world's largest freshwater aquarium, according to the zoo.
