CHAO MAI NATIONAL PARK
Dugong is a kind of mammal living in the sea. It has a slim and shuttle-like body parallel to the
ground with two-jagged stern and no dorsal fin. Its mouth is at the lower part of the upper lip which looks like a pig's nose. The young bugong has a white body, while the aged one has a grayish brown one with approximately 300 kilograms of weight.
Dugong lives with its family, and several families join together for feeding. It delivers
one baby dugong at a time by getting pregnant for one whole year. It is fully grown at the age
of 13 to 14. Dugong looks for sea grass as its foods on the sea floor both during day and
Dugong can be found in the east coast of African Continent, Red Sea, along the Indian
Ocean's coastal line to the Philippines, Taiwan and northern Australia. But this rear animal is found in the Gulf of Thailand near Rayong, Chonburi, Prachuab Kirikhan and the Andaman Sea in
Phuket, Pang Nga, Krabi and Trang.
Currently, dugong can hardly be fond. The remainders are living in a small crowd or alone.
Being hunted for its meat as foods and its grease as fuel, holding low reproduction capability, getting affected from coastal pollution which extinguishes the sources of sea grass and algae as their nourishing foods, dugong will be the extinct animal in the near future.
