Snooty has died!

Today was a sad day for the manatee world.  Snooty the oldest captive manatee was found dead at the South Florida Museum.  Sadly, Snooty’s fatal accident came one day after he turned 69 years old.  An infamous part of the museum, Snooty will be greatly missed.  Snooty had never lived in the wild due to being born and raised in captivity.  He lived at the  museum’s Parker Manatee Aquarium and was a popular attraction.  The accident is being investigated and thankfully, no other manatees at the museum were injured.  Rest in Peace Snooty, there are many who will miss you.
