We have a new NSB resident!
My friend named the baby Ruby and another friend named the momma Jade.
Jade has a little piece missing from her dorsal fin making her easy to identify. She is a very sweet momma, smiles a lot and seems to love teaching Ruby.
Although Ruby loves to roll on her back I haven't seen her belly yet, so I'm not sure she is girl, but for now we are going with Ruby. My guess is little Ruby is 2-3 months old, she loves to swim fast and mingle with the pod. She isn't shy, and seems to have a little wanderlust, which can make life challenging for momma.
Many people think dolphins are too smart to get hit by boats but the truth is they can get distracted, especially if they are fishing, mating or chasing after a baby. Please, if you are in a boat and see a pod of dolphins give them a little space as you pass. Thanks!
