Dolphins of Ponta 'Adot' and 'Beever'
Dolphin of Ponta 'Adot'
Today is our first #finfriday! Local #DolphinofPonta ADot first made it onto the DolphinCare catalogue in 2007! She has been a regular in our Reserve now for over a decade and the dolphin team have had the honour of watching her raise a number of babies in the coastal shallows of the Ponta do Ouro Partial Marine Reserve in Mozambique! If you are wondering what the bracketed numbers is - this is her official code on the catalogue.
Dolphin of Ponta 'Beever'
Local #DolphinofPonta Beever first made it onto the catalogue in 1999. Beever is an adult male who can get a bit excited when visiting us humans - he is known for fast and tight bouts of circle swims and conscious interaction. Beaver is named after one of our original founders, he has a pretty cool and recognisable dorsal fin and a white spot (not to be confused with Lolly and Rob) that makes him easier to identify in a sea of dolfriends! He is often seen in the company of Buster, Nelson and now deceased Cremildo! We estimate Beaver to be around 22 years old!
