It’s A Girl!

Gulf World Marine Park has a new member of the family.

Sandy, an Atlantic Bottlenose dolphin, gave birth to a baby girl at 3:33 Thursday morning after 17 ½ hours of labor.

Gulf World bred Sandy with an 18-year-old bottlenose dolphin on loan from Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park in Fort Walton Beach.

People visiting the marine park on Friday got an unexpected surprise. During the dolphin show, they were able to see the new born calf and watch it nurse.

The baby does not have a name yet. But you can see video of her tonight on NewsChannel 7.
