Watch: Almost a thousand manatees stay warm at a Florida state park

A record 932 manatees came to Florida's Blue Spring State Park to keep warm, the park's Facebook page confirmed.

The group of aquatic mammals huddled in the warm waters on Sunday. The springs are constantly a comfortable 72 degrees, which means manatees gather when other waters become too cold.

If manatees are in waters colder than 68 degrees, they can develop health problems and cold stress.

The park's previous record was 736 manatees

Here's some video of the record breaking event.
