Angel the dolphin celebrates third birthday at Gulf World

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - The birthday festivities were not bottled up for one local dolphin.

Angel the bottlenose dolphin celebrated her third birthday at Gulf World Wednesday.

Visitors sang "Happy Birthday" to her and signed a birthday card wishing her a special day.

Angel's birthday fell on one of Gulf World's "Witches Wednesdays," which are weekly celebrations during the month of October.

For the spooky festivities, guests could get their faces painted and enjoy meet and greets with Gulf World's mascots.

Gulf World staff said Angel is a spunky, petite, and sweet dolphin.

"She absolutely loves hanging out with her Aunt Indie and she loves playing basketball and she loves learning new things. The trainers talk about how she just learns new things all the time," Sam Tuno, Gulf World's Sales and Marketing Manager, said.

Witches Wednesday also included Halloween-themed games and shows in the afternoon.
