Dolphin FB55 is part of a life-long and well-known female lineage in Sarasota Bay. She is the third calf of a dolphin known as FB05 (first identified in 1971, the year after the SDRP began), she is the sister of F155 and the grandmother of F255. She has been sighted more than 1,100 times since her birth in 1986. Over her lifetime, she’s given birth to seven calves of her own — including her most recent calf, C557, born in 2020. During a health assessment in 1988, we removed a stingray barb from her head.
