Commeron's at SWC
      #107791 - 07/12/02 04:43 PM

When were they captured? Were they at another aquarium before they came to SW? Which SW were they at first?
Where were they captured?
Just a bunch of questions that have been on my mind...lol

1983 The Chilian Gov. asked / approved SeaWorld to capture of the the origional colony. The gov. wanted more info on the animals- info that ecology couldn't give (gestation, growth rate ect). The origional colony went to San Diego, and was eventually displayed in the Under the Sea Theatre.

1985 The first of many calves was born, Jacob!

1996, 8 Commersons make their debute at the Ohio parks, where many stay until SWO's purchase by Six Flags, the remaining dolphin return to San Diego

Future PLans for a new Commerson exhibit are underway, and might appear in 2003 or 2004. Currently theya re in the AC unit, and more calves continue to be born!

SWC has about a dozen or so...when we saw them back in AC, I didn't have the presence of mind to count. =\

If there was a group originally, and they have hardly stopped breeding ever since, then where are all these other dolphins going?
