Silas, E G (1961) Occurrence of the sea cow Halicore dugong (ERXL.), off the Saurashtra coast. Journal of The Bombay Natural History Society , 58 (1). pp. 263-266.
A recent note by Mani (l960) which appeared under the above title calls for some comments. 1. The occurrence of a dead a'nd floating dugong in the sea noticed near Kalyan lighthouse on 17 July 1959 is a rare sight indeed, and to my knowledge this appears to be the first such record. The natural tendency of many of the marine mammals is to sink when they are killed and that such was not the case with the above specimen, in spite of its relati ve freshness, is interesting.
