Taras, the baby dolphin

August 9th, 2014 at 8.59 pm Blue has given birth to a baby dolphin of bottlenose dolphin (Tursiop truncates).

The baby dolphin weighted 20 kilos and he was 110 cm long. His first feeding took place at 11.41 pm (after 3 hours from the birth). Thank’s to his mother milk, the baby grew in weight 15 kilos and in length 20 cm.

Baby Taras will be breast feed by his mum for a long time as bottlenose dolphins do it for up to 4 years.

Taras is not into any training program at the moment but his curiosity and sociability is under everyone eyes.  With the help of his dad Micha, mum Blue and the "grandmother" Pelé, he interacts with the adults making some very funny imitations.
