A new addition recently joined the dolphin family at Discovery Cove in Orlando!
On March 18th, the 28th baby Atlantic Bottlenose dolphin was born at the facility since it opened in 2000. The female calf now weighs 48 pounds and measures 47 inches in length.
The calf is the fourth from her mother Natalie, and the two dolphins are receiving around-the-clock care from the Discovery Cove zoological team along with another mother-calf duo. The baby has been nursing and bonding with her mother, and a wellness exam a week after the calf was born reported no health concerns.
