Dolphin Calf Born at the Mirage in Las Vegas

Another reason to visit the Mirage in Las Vegas has been born. The said casino-resort welcomes the guests to see the newly born bottlenose dolphin calf. This new addition to the dolphin family of the resort will definitely bring luck and joy to the guests.

The female dolphin calf was brought to world last July 17. It was a successful and smooth delivery that made everyone relieved. In fact, the baby female calf immediately swam onto the surface of the water as soon as she was delivered. No assistance was needed for the baby female calf to take her first breath as she swam. A name has yet to be given to this little dolphin since the casino-resort has not provided any.
