so the oldest manatee in human care is named Snooty and he’s in his mid 60’s and lives in some museum in southern florida but apparently he heaves his head and flippers out of his tank all the time and if you don’t find this cute idk there’s something wrong with you
Omg, I miss him!
WAIT. OTHER PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT SNOOTY??
He has very similar body language to an affectionate dog; he’ll grab onto his trainer’s arm with his flipper because he doesn’t want her to go- it’s the cutest thing.
