PHOTO GALLERY | Happy Birthday, Snooty!

Bradenton’s beloved manatee, Snooty, celebrated his 62nd birthday this weekend. Among all the recurring subjects that we have photographed over the years at our newspaper, in many ways Snooty takes the cake — in no small part due to his longevity and apparent penchant for photo ops since he first dipped his fins in the Manatee waters.

Dearest Snooty, may your new year be filled with carrots, heaps of romaine lettuce and the daily laughter of children.

And just as always, we wish you many happy returns.
