Lucky Charm

Meet Your Area Dolphins

Born in 2006, this dolphin has been on its own for 10 years and is approaching adulthood.

It’s impossible to tell a male dolphin from a female just by looking at them, but social behavior over time can give us a clue. Lucky Charm is usually seen by itself or in the company of adult females and other sub-adult dolphins. This leads us to be believe that it may be a female, but it has not given birth to a calf yet, so the jury is still out. Give us a bit more time and we’ll know for sure.
