With no boat trip on Friday the interns were able to finally catch up on some more data analysis. The day was full of identifying dolphins. We are all very excited to announce that we have a new dolphin confirmed in our catalog, ID#104! This male spotted dolphin is the calf of Swoosh (#36) and although we have been following him for several years, he only became recognizable by his spot pattern last year. On his right side there are three spots (like Orion’s belt), as well as a small nick in his dorsal fin. We are happy to have a new addition and very, very happy to know his mother!
