Just yesterday, we spotted this little baby dolphin, and it looks only a day or two old! “Valkkai” is now the newest member of the harbor dolphins pod! Valkkai’s “birth rings” are still visible, and yesterday when we saw this new baby, it was only about two to two and a half feet long, and still practicing to swim. Also, Valkkai’s dorsal fin and flukes have not hardened yet, indicating that this calf is likely only a few days old.

In the first photo, Valkkai “spyhops” to take a look out of the water. Although this is a nice photo, it was more adorable seeing Valkkai do this in real life, as the behavior was done clumsily because Valkkai is still learning how to swim.
