Kibby Goes Fishing

Guests frequently ask us if the dolphins ever eat the fish that swim in their lagoons. We know they’re certainly able to catch the snapper. Kibby recently demonstrated this when we spotted him swimming around with a large mangrove snapper in his mouth. Although the dolphins swallow their food whole and a one pound herring is no problem, this snapper measured over 20 inches long!
Kibby looked mighty proud of his catch, but he was also quite happy to exchange for one of those tasty herring.

Simply Pandora-ble!

When they see Pandora smile, guests can't help smiling back!
Leave it to Pandora to create an experience that entertains not only her, but everybody around. During a recent Dolphin Encounter, when she gave a young girl a flippershake, the guest started to giggle. Pandora didn’t miss a beat before she began giggling, too. This tickled everyone’s funny bones and all of the other Encounter participants began to laugh. There were big smiles everywhere that afternoon!
