Русский: Иллюстрация из книги И. Н. Березина Ледяной плен.
Date 1907
Author Johann Friedrich von Brandt

Steller's sea cow (Hydrodamalis gigas) is an extinct species of sirenian that was found exclusively around the Commander Islands, which are situated in the Bering Sea between Alaska and Russia. Its closest living relative is the dugong (Dugong dugon), which is the sole surviving member of the Dugongidae, of which Steller's sea cow was also a part. It was among the largest mammals other than whales to have existed into the Holocene epoch, reaching weights of 8–10 metric tons and lengths of 9 metres.
