Snooty Sign at Museum

Snooty is the world’s oldest manatee – he is 64 years old! Snooty was born on July 21, 1948, and lives at the South Florida Museum in Bradenton. Snooty is doing very well, and “corresponds” with children across the country. We enjoyed seeing Snooty play with a coconut.

Sad Update:  Snooty died in a tragic aquarium accident just after celebrating his 69th birthday in July 2017.  

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
