Today we’re celebrating the 8th birthday of one of our male dolphins, Beau!
A little about Beau…
- He is the son of Nani who, at 41, is our oldest dolphin.
- Nani means beautiful in Hawaiian and Beau means handsome, and that he is!
- Beau is darker grey in color and has dark shading around his chin and jaw line (which makes it look like he has a 5 o’clock shadow).
- Currently he weighs 375 pounds and he is continuing to grow as he reaches maturity.
Each of our dolphins has their own distinctive personality. In his early years, Beau was a bit of a “mommas boy,” spending most of his time close to Nani. As he has grown, we have seen a new, more playful, side of Beau. He really likes to learn and is often inventing new vocalizations to use in interactions with Foster.
Join me in wishing Beau a very happy birthday by leaving him a message in the comments section or on our Facebook page!
