Give a name to #110
DCP ID#110 is a juvenile, female Atlantic spotted dolphin. DCP has been observing her off the coast of Bimini, The Bahamas, since 2015, when she was already independent from her mom. She is a “clean” dolphin, meaning that like many of the dolphins in this study area, she does not have any major nicks or scars. Even without scars, DCP researchers can recognize her, year after year, thanks to her unique spot pattern. As she comes by the boat and our cameras, we get the chance to document her new spot development and associations over time. Through the years, she has been seen with younger dolphins, like Sulfur (#102), as well as older females, including Romeo (#10) and Juliette (#12). This past spring, we even saw her in the Bimini harbor with Paul (#99) and Vee (#101). Who will she be with later this summer? And, when will she have her first calf? DCP will be watching the waters off Bimini to find out!
