A Dolphin’s Life

F259 was born in 2013 to a dolphin named Saida Beth, FB33. We’re excited to report that she’s a first-time mom this year (2022), having given birth to the 10th of 12 calves documented to Sarasota Bay dolphins so far in 2022. Nine years old is the average age of first-time dolphin moms in Sarasota Bay.

The picture below shows F259 with her first calf, 2591. We can only hope that she will be a mom as successful as Saida Beth, who has given birth to 11 calves of her own since she was born in 1982. Her most recent calf was born in 2018.
