BRADENTON, Fla. - Snooty the Manatee, the oldest living manatee in captivity, is celebrating a birthday milestone Saturday.
July 20th is Snooty's 65th birthday, and each birthday continues to set the record for how long manatees are known to live.
The South Florida Museum is throwing an extra-special birthday bash Saturday that includes activities, food, entertainment and of course, a visit with Snooty. Admission to the outdoor activities in the museum's north parking lot and along 10th street are free. General admission to the museum, aquarium and planetarium is reduced Saturday to $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, and free for anyone born in 1948 just like Snooty.
Kids are $6 ages 4-12 and children under 4 are free.
The party will be held from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. You can find more information about the festivities here: SouthFloridaMuseum.org/Snooty65 .
