Happy Birthday To The Worlds Oldest Manatee

Happy Birthday Snooty!
Yesterday (July 21), Snooty turned the ripe old age of 66.
Snooty was born in 1948 in captivity. For this reason, he cannot be returned to the wild.
But Snooty is still living a happy life.
"Snooty eats 70-80lbs of lettuce, carrots, kale, cabbage, bok choy, broccoli and other assorted vegetables daily. "
"With a diet like that, there’s no wonder why he’s the world’s oldest manatee!" says South Florida Musuem.
Manatees are generally sweet creatures, and Snooty is no exception.
