Baby Bit, or B.B., one of the youngest members of our dolphin family, is remarkably bold and full of personality! Although she is still dependent on her mother, Dinghy, for the majority of her nutrition (milk) and social bonding, she exhibited strong independence at a very young age. Baby Bit is quite gregarious and frequently socializes with all of her housemates. However, she shows a clear preference for other juveniles in her lagoon when it comes to play and exploration. Do not let her name fool you, as Baby Bit is most recognizable by her robust size and double chins. B.B.’s dorsal fin and flukes are pristine, with no defects or distinct marks around the trailing edges. In addition, B.B. has two distinct small freckles on her ventral side of her peduncle, like her father LB.
Born: November 3, 2000 Bella is best known for her vibrant pink pigmentation on her belly. Despite her feminine appearance, Bella is a tomboy through and through. Her trainers feel she is extremely competitive, often trying to jump the highest, swim the fastest and talk the loudest! If you listen closely, you can hear Bella’s vocalizations from across the canal!
Born: July 28, 1994 Named after the reggae singer, Bob Marley, Bob is a laidback dolphin with a gentle demeanor. Bob’s dark gray color, prominent lower jaw and large dorsal fin are his most prominent identifying characteristics. In our natural swim, one of Bob’s favorite activities is swimming guests in circles, leaving their heads spinning for days!
Ding-a-ling, also known as Dinghy, is our alpha female and resident “human trainer”. She commands respect and attention from our guests and staff, with her piercing, all knowing eyes. Dinghy is best identified by her solid grey belly, triangular shaped dorsal fin, and perfectly symmetrical teeth and flukes. A no nonsense mom, she teaches her children right from wrong at an early age. Dinghy keeps us all on our toes and is truly one of a kind.
Born: June 25, 2004 Fiji is known as a gentle, sweet-natured, young male. He is easily identified by his pale gray coloration, and rosy pink belly. His unique flukes are shaped like a crescent moon, with light shading on the trailing edges. Fiji’s tranquil demeanor shines during the special needs therapy program, yet his playful nature emanates when playing ball with his trainers!
Born: July 11, 2008 Grace is a precocious youngster, who is larger than life! Although known to cause mischief, she is also extremely intelligent and up for a challenge! Grace quickly masters complex training scenarios and amazes her trainers with her fearless nature. Grace is best identified by her “C”-shaped dorsal fin, unique light patch on her rostrum, light coloration and pink racing stripe down her side.
Jessica, our longest female dolphin, enjoys being a mom and is best known for her tranquil, yet strong personality. Although easy going by nature, Jessica’s subtle control over the other dolphins is evident when protecting her offspring. Jessica prefers her calves stay close by and tends to nurse her calves for an extended period of time. She is easy to recognize by her small, triangular shaped dorsal fin and protruding lower jaw.
Born: August 27, 2008 Lotus, or “Lo”, is large for her age, yet still finds comfort in being in close proximity to her mother. She is a high energy, young female with a very short attention span. Her trainers equate Lotus with a hyperactive child, who requires constant attention from her trainers and dolphin family. Lotus has an elongated melon and rostrum, just like her father, Bob.
Sarah is a complex dolphin with many aspects to her personality. Her beauty and grace captivate guests as they watch her pose, allowing her picture to be taken. Sarah gravitates towards smaller swimmers and children and excels at behaviors requiring her to be precise. Despite her gentle demeanor, she is a dominant female and doting mother, who requires her offspring to follow her lead and do as they are told. Sarah is best identified by the grey star at the end of her rostrum and two “C” shaped notches on the trailing edge of her dorsal fin. Her beauty captivates all the guests around her.
Squirt is much wiser than her years and has an amusing sense of humor that she loves to share with her trainers and guests. Her amazing maternal instincts are evident as she interacts with the special needs children in our dolphin assisted therapy program. She is easily recognizable by her unique “V” shaped notch on her dorsal fin, petite rostrum, and owl-like eyes.
