Who is in the Aquarium?

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.

Snooty has some new pals in the Parker Manatee Aquarium! All manatees were brought to us from SeaWorld. They had been in the care of SeaWorld’s 1st stage manatee care hospital. The Museum works with SeaWorld to care for sick, injured, and orphaned manatees as part of the Manatee Rescue and Release Partnership:

· Randall is a male and was trapped in a culvert pipe near Palatka, FL; he was rescued December 13, 2016.

· Gale, a female, was brought into captivity as a calf still dependent on her mother, Tsunami, who was rescued suffering from cold stress and physical injuries. Tsunami subsequently passed away. Gale and Tsunami were rescued December 29, 2016 from Crane Creek near Melbourne, FL.

· Baca is a male and was suffering from cold stress; he was rescued on January 9 from the Banana river, Cocoa Beach, FL.

Baca has some white marks – scars from the effects of cold stress– on his side and he is smaller. Gale and Randall are about the same size and don’t have any easily identified marks, so they’ll be harder to tell apart on the SnootyCam or in photos, but Gale is slightly shorter and rounder in size.

Enjoy watching these wonderful young manatees – along with Snooty, of course – on the SnootyCam!
