This dolphin is upside down tail slapping. Dolphins tail slap to get another dolphin’s attention. Likely this adult was telling a rambunctious baby to calm down. You can also tell if a dolphin is a girl or a boy when it does this. Look at a dolphin’s belly, and if you see two slits on its belly (positioned in the shape of an exclamation mark), it is a boy. If there is only one slit, it is a girl. To see a video I took of a dolphin upside down tail slapping, visit  https://dolphinwonders.wordpress.com/2016/07/08/adzin-splashing-upside-down-gif/
