Guests at the Gulf World Marine Park witnessed a once-in-a-lifetime experience Monday, when Brinnon, an experienced mother and bottle nose dolphin, gave birth to the Park's newest dolphin addition.
This birth is the third in the last three weeks at the Park.
On-lookers watched the delivery process for over an hour, according to Park officials. Although lengthy, officials say it was a "text-book delivery."
The Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park loaned the father of the three new babies, an 18 year old bottle nose, to the Gulf World Marine Park by for breeding purposes.
