Happy birthday, Bayley!

Published July 27, 2010

Today our youngest dolphin, Bayley, turns 2 years old! Bayley is the daughter of Chesapeake and Chinook.  In between training sessions and shows, you can often see her chasing and playing with 3-year-old Foster, investigating new toys, or just resting and swimming under her mom, Chesapeake. We have also seen Bayley blow bubbles underwater and play with them! They are in the form of rings or even long lines, which we call “bubble snakes,” which she chases and bites at. Bayley is extremely energetic and eager to learn new things. She just recently learned the “high jump” behavior, in which the dolphin jumps up and touches a buoy suspended in the air. With her small size, Bayley only jumps about 10 feet out of the water right now, but as she grows bigger and stronger, she’ll be able to hit the buoy almost 20 feet in the air, like her big sister Maya! Look for Bayley and her high jump in our show, Our Ocean Planet. In lieu of presents, you can TXT the word ACT to 20222 to give Bayley a gift! Your $5 donation will support the care and feeding of Bayley and her 16,000 aquatic friends at the Aquarium.
