The world’s oldest manatee has died in a “heartbreaking” accident at his Florida home a day after celebrating his 69th birthday.
Snooty, an intelligent and highly sociable male manatee, appears to have died on Sunday after getting trapped in a maintenance hatch he shared with three young rescued manatees.
According to the South Florida Museum, a panel door leading out of the underwater tank which is normally bolted shut had been knocked loose.
