Mothers Day at Discovery CoveMay 11, 2018
This year, we are celebrating Mother’s Day with flukes and peduncles by highlighting three Bottlenose Dolphins and their calves who call Discovery Cove home.
Meet Calypso! Calypso was born at SeaWorld Orlando and will be 13 years old this November. Calypso is known for creating bubble rings. She is a first-time mother to a boy, Titan, who was born on August 6, 2016 at Discovery Cove. Titan is known for his vocalizations, which can be heard from across the lagoon at Discovery Cove.
Next, meet Roxy! Roxy was born at SeaWorld Ohio, and will be 20 this summer. Roxy had her second calf, Kona, on August 3, 2016 at Discovery Cove. Roxy’s mother, Thelma, also lives at our park.
Lastly, meet Astra, an experienced mother at Discovery Cove. Astra was born at SeaWorld San Diego and is 35. Astra is known for her high flying acrobatic skills! Her most recent calf, Skye, was born February 23, 2016 here at Discovery Cove. Skye is already a quick learner and will surely follow in her mother’s “fluke” steps!
From Discovery Cove and SeaWorld Orlando, we wish all mothers (land and sea) a very happy Mother’s Day!
