Another baby?
      #62527 - 02/06/02 05:11 PM

Ok, I found this press release also, but it says the mom's name is Scarlet and the baby was born on January 8. Did the other site make a mistake in saying it was Astra who had a calf or is this a different baby?

I don't know, I was trying to compare the mothers, they look similar but they also look different so they could be either the same dolphin or not. lol aren't I a big help?

I think it might be the same one... Not sure though. The babies (and adults) turn pink when they get hot. It's the blood flowing through their capillaries in their skin and it turns them pink. It's so cute!

The mother dolphin in the picture really looks like Scarlet. She always had a short rostrum with a prominent underbite.

Here's a shot of her as a 2 year old in SWC's old petting pool. She was a chubby Tursiops during the summer of 1981, and we used to joke about her 4 chins when she would open her mouth!

Is Scarlett at Discovery Cove? I met "a" Scarlett while I was doing T4AD at the dolphin stadium in SWF.
