Despite being over 15 feet long, he was such a gentle guy. He felt like a big cuddly cucumber! The dolphins in the adjacent pools where getting freaked out, but even they calmed down after awhile. Because we didn't know the exact "baby" formula to feed him, and perhaps because we weren't energetically sending enough love to him, he died after a few weeks.
Aaaaw, I'm so jealous
. Sorry the bub died
. I have seen a mum and baby playing together from the shore in Victoria, it was so hypnotic and lovely (I have photos but the distance makes it hard to guess they are whales).
Tasmania is full of them too (whale AND dolphins). I once saw a small pod (of dolphins) playing right at the docks in Hobart. Amazing. And some of my friends saw the hugest pod ever (I have the photo they took...you can't count the dolphins, there are so many!!!). Can you guess i have a thing for dolphins?
