Give a name to #101
DCP ID#101, is a sub-adult, female Atlantic spotted dolphin. DCP has been observing her off the coast of Bimini, The Bahamas since 2012, when she was already a juvenile. She is a “clean” dolphin, meaning that she does not have any major nicks or scars. Because of this, researchers rely on her spot pattern to recognize her, year after year. Thankfully, she seems fairly interested in the boat and our cameras, which allows us to document her new spot development and associations over time. Through the years, she has been seen with younger dolphins, like Sulfur (#102), as well as older females, including Romeo (#10) and Juliette (#12). Who will she be with next year? And, when will she have her first calf? DCP will be watching the waters off Bimini to find out!
