Meet Your Area Dolphins – Coco


The Research Team on board the Dolphin Explorer is happy to share information about your area dolphins with the Coastal Breeze News readers. Each edition an individual will be profiled so that you, too, might get to know them. Dolphins can be identified by the nicks and marks on their dorsal fins.

Meet Coco

This sub-adult (old enough to be on its own but not yet reached maturity) is the offspring of adult female Nibbles. Born in the fall of 2012, Coco turns seven years old this month.

Recently Coco has been keeping company with another youngster named Keegan and they seem to pair quite nicely. Coco has two other siblings in the area, Jayson and Popcorn, and there is a good chance that mom Nibbles is pregnant at this time.
