About Animals

How FLORIDA’s FAMOUS ANIMALS originated.

On Florida’s lower west coast in Bradenton in 1966 my family & I met a manatee.

Today this same manatee is still living in Bradenton. He is known as Snooty.

I never forgot his story.

And his story, from baby reportedly born in captivity to his work in educating schoolchildren & helping visiting sick & injured manatees in need of rehabilitation,is noteworthy.

Visit Snooty at the Parker Manatee Aquarium www.southfloridamuseum.org
