Happy 13th Birthday, Maya!

Blog-Header-AnimalExpertUpd

Recently, the Dolphin Discovery staff has been very busy celebrating and continuing to commemorate a few birthdays among our dolphin family!

The first of our birthdays was celebrated by Spirit, who turned 13-years-old on April 13th. Spirit’s eyes are larger and darker in color. You can also recognize her by her crooked teeth in the lower right side of rostrum.

Spirit loves to learn new things and is very vocal and chatty. She is often seen sliding up on the decks in a game that she invented along with a few of the others!

Today, exactly one month later, Spirit’s half-sister Maya is celebrating her 13th birthday!

Maya is playful, energetic and loves to learn new things. She is lighter in color, with a light-tipped rostrum and a very pink belly!

Maya tends to be a cheerleader of sorts for our other dolphins and she always vocalizes excitedly when the others exhibit new behaviors!

Can’t celebrate Maya’s birthday in person today? Leave her a message on our Facebook page
