Paul (#99)  has been observed off Bimini since 2011, the first summer after he was born. In the early years, when he was always by his mom (Leslie, #80)’s side, the pair spent much of their time with Lil’ Jess (#35) and her calf. Paul is easily recognized by the double notch in his peduncle. Paul Alexander Landis, aka Paul or PAL, was named in 2015 by Carl & Sylvia Landis, in memory of their son, Paul Alexander Landis, who loved the ocean.
