Cole-Gulf World
      #108707 - 07/15/02 04:50 PM

Does anyone know anything about a young male stranded July 31, 1995 and taken in by Texas marine Mammal Stranding. Nicknamed "Cole" he was transported to Gulf World on March 13th 1996. Supposedly still there in August 97, does anyone know anything after this?

They have a female named Cola-different dolphin. I'm wondering if they changed his name or if he passed away?

Yeah, I think you're right about Indie...I never had the chance to ask the correct spelling but that's the one I've seen the most.

Brinnon came to GW from the Navy and is estimated to be around 18 years old - she was captured in 1988. She arrived at GW in 1994 along with another female named Olive who later died in 1999.

Sandy was captured in 1989 and is estimated to be approximately 16 years old.

The only female I can find that died in 1994 is one named Ellie, she died of septicemia.

Hope this helps you...
