Tangalooma Island Resort has welcomed a new addition to its family of wild dolphins, as proud mum Tangles showed off her new calf to onlookers last night.
Dolphin Care team manager Susan Hassard said on Monday evening that Tangles was doing well and already showing signs of being a great mother, keeping her one-day-old baby away from the nightly feeding program.
“Tangles is showing all the signs of being an excellent mother and this will give her little one a great chance of survival,” Mrs Hassard said.
“Tangalooma’s dolphins are very successful at raising strong and healthy offspring with an incredible 100 per cent survival rate.
“We are so excited to see this new baby appear.”
The young dolphin is yet to be named as staff at Tangalooma Resort wait to see how its personality develops.
