  1. Snooty

    Snooty is a Florida Manatee, that resides at the South Florida Museum's Parker Manatee Aquarium in Bradenton, Florida. Born at the Miami Aquarium and Tackle Company on July 21, 1948, Snooty was one of the first recorded captive manatee births. Snooty is the oldest manatee in captivity, and likely the oldest manatee in the world. Because Snooty is not going to be released into the wild, he is the only manatee at the aquarium that is allowed to interact with human handlers. According to old-timers, he was first called Baby Snooks, named after a popular radio character on the The Baby Snooks Show played by Fanny Brice in the late 1940s. The young calf lived at the Miami Aquarium with Lady, his mother, an injured manatee, for nearly a year, where operator Sam Stout trained both Lady and her calf to do tricks. Lady was later released, but Baby Snooks was donated to Manatee County, Florida. There, due to a translation misinterpretation upon his delivery, his name got altered to Baby Snoots, likely because of the "snuffling" sounds the calf made with his "snoot". After he was brought to the South Florida Museum for the 1949 De Soto Heritage Festival, he was housed in a 30,000 gallon round tank at the Bradenton Municipal Pier, also the original home of the South Florida Museum and Bradenton's local radio station WTRL.
