Next month i'm going to shedd and i was just wondering if anyone could give me information about their dolphins and belugas. Like their names, and how to tell them apart from each other. Any info would be great...thanks! :-)

This is from Shedd's site:

The dolphins are named Kri (KREE - "Nine"), Sira (SEE-rah - "Side That Is White"), Tique (TEE-kay - "Born In Water"), Piquet (pih-KET - "Female of Small Stature") and Katrl (kah- TRIL - "To Breathe Air").

The belugas have names from the language of the Inuit, the native people of the Canadian artic. The names are Puiji (poooEEojee - "Those Who Show Their Noses"), Naluark (nahoLOOoark - "Whitened Skin"), Mauyak (MYoack - "Soft Snow"), Naya (NYEoah - "Little Sister to a Male"), Kayavak (KAHo yaho vok - "Singing Game That Produces Soft Echoes") and Qannik (kahoNIK - "Snowflake").


(You'd think they'd pick easier names to say =P)
