Who is in the Aquarium?

Snooty does not currently have any wild manatees sharing his pool. His two previous manatee pals, Sarasolo and Icecube, were released in February and March of this year (respectively). We will update this information when a wild manatee undergoing rehabilitation is identified as an appropriate pool-mate for Snooty. Check back soon!

Snooty - Snooty is 68 years old and has been in the care of the South Florida Museum since he was 11 months old. Snooty can be identified by his size, his large tail and two small indentations on his left side which are scars from having two skin infections treated several decades ago.
