Bottlenose Dolphin - mother and newborn baby /

Bottlenose Dolphin - mother and newborn baby / calf - swimming together (Tursiops truncatus). Malta. The calf was born on July 20th 2010 at 15:30. At birth its weight was roughly 15 kg and 1m in length. The mother is 'Onda', a 14 year old female from Cuba but guest of the grand Mediterraneo Dolphinarium since 2003. The father is 'Lucas', a 12 year old also from Cuba. Gestation in this species of dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) is approximately 12 months. Nursing can last up two years but already after 4 months-old the calf can start to feed himself setting in motion the weaning process. This forms part of a species propagation programme in a monitored environment that Marineland Ltd, the company that runs the Mediterraneo Marine Park, has planned in Malta for some time.

Bottlenose dolphins - dancing and blowing air underwater Featured Print

Bottlenose dolphins - dancing and blowing air underwater

Bottlenose dolphins - dancing and blowing air underwater (Tursiops truncatus). Complex play / creative behaviour: dolphins often play with the bubbles or rings of air they create, both visually and by using sonar. They appear to enjoy biting the vortex rings, so that these burst into many separate normal bubbles, which then rise more rapidly to the surface. They also play games, diving through the bubble rings for fun!This group of dolphins are captive in Oltremare a theme park dedicated to the Adriatic sea located in Riccione, Italy, and are used in shows, educational programs (specially for school children) and research (we are studying mainly sound and echo location). From left to right:- Achille, 4 year old captive born; Bonnie, 30 years old mother of Achille; Ulisse, 9 years old captive born; Bravo, 28 years old father of Achille, Silver, Golia, Tabo, Ulisse; Tabo, 13 years old captive born; Candy, 27 years old mother of Tabo & Ulisse; Golia, 13 years old captive born; Micha, 20 year old male (starting a reproductive program this year); Silver, 9 years old captive born..
