Killer whales aren't the only animals making magic at SeaWorld Orlando. Three Atlantic bottlenose dolphins have been born at the park this year, with a fourth on the way, park officials say.
All three babies were born at Discovery Cove, SeaWorld's boutique theme park where visitors can swim with the animals. "That's a pretty active social group," said Dr. Chris Dold, vice president of veterinary services for SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment.
SeaWorld says it has recorded more than 100 successful dolphin births in company history. It has 94 dolphins at its Orlando parks and 170 companywide. The dolphin births come even as two of SeaWorld Orlando's eight killer whales are expecting. One is due later this month or early next month, and the other is due in October.
