Bradenton, Florida -- Happy birthday, Snooty!
The South Florida Museum manatee is celebrating his 66th birthday on Saturday, and the birthday bash will include food, children's games and activities, entertainment, and information on wildlife awareness. Snooty himself will be sung "Happy Birthday" and be given a birthday "cake" made out of vegetables.
It's all happening at the Spanish Plaza by the Manatee River, right outside the museum. For details, visit the South Florida Museum's website.
Snooty is the oldest manatee in captivity, and has lived at the South Florida Museum since April of 1949. Snooty is also the official mascot of Manatee County.
