Captive dolphin newsflash
      #75606 - 04/06/02 04:23 AM

Ok...this is what i found out:
pepina at Duisburgīs Zoo in Germany gave birth to a calf in october last year but it was presented to the public just a month ago. the calf is male and is called Duke. His father is Ivo.
Iris seems to finally feel comfortable in her new home. She does a lot of eneretic jumps and plays a lot lately.

There is a rumor that Iris might go back to Belgium to live with their also 30 year old male Pucky..this isnīt confirmed,yet.

The male dolphin that is coming to MLF will be coming at the end of the summer season. The dolphin will come from Argentina not Italy.

I know I wanted to post more but iīm still jet lagged so I donīt remember..LOL!

Thank you! Iīll post about it ,soon!
Yep! there is a Asterix and Obelix theme park with a dolphinarium! Their breedding program is actually really sucessful. right now they have eight dolphins.
Go to www.parcasterix.fr click on "spectacles" then "līeau" there you īll find pics and stats on each phin.
Iris is about 30. thatīs why she and Pucky would be a perfect couple!
Hope that helped!

Are you sure Pucky isnt a female? I've heard of that dolphin before and always referred to as a she. Oh well, perhaps I am wrong.

LOL! For some reason I read, "...and rode on and fed otters" I was like, "How the heck did you manage to ride an otter??'
