Dolphin Calf Born at SeaWorld

A dolphin calf was born Tuesday at 9:36am at SeaWorld Orlando.  The calf weighs 35 pounds and is 40 inches long, with the sex unknown at this time.  It was seen nursing and bonding with its mom, both a good indication that the calf is doing well. Park guests can see the pair at SeaWorld’s Dolphin Nursery. In the nursery pregnant dolphins, new mothers, their calves and experienced moms live together.

One thought on “Dolphin Calf Born at SeaWorld

  1. Thanks for this wonderful article. Yet another thing to mention is that a lot of digital cameras come equipped with a zoom lens that allows more or less of that scene for being included through ‘zooming’ in and out. These kinds of changes in target length are generally reflected inside the viewfinder and on large display screen on the back of your camera.
