The World’s Oldest Manatee Is Dead After A Tragic Accident At The South Florida Museum

While we do our best here at Only In Florida to deliver news that will bring a smile to your face, it is with extremely heavy hearts that we share the passing of the greatly loved Snooty, a resident of the South Florida Museum in Bradenton. Here’s what we know so far about this unbelievably heartbreaking loss.

To reminisce over why Snooty was one of the greatest creatures Florida has ever known, watch this wonderful video put together by Guinness World Records from just last year.

If you have your own memories or photos of our dear Snooty, we encourage you to share them with us in our comments section in celebration of his life.
