Join us in wishing a huge Happy Birthday to Luna, who turned four years old yesterday. Luna was born under a blue moon which is why she was named the spanish word. Following in the flukeprints of her mother, Pandora, Luna loves to play and tease her trainers. Her new favorite toy is a target pole, just like her momma! As a more reserved dolphin, Luna can sometimes be shy until she warms up to a new toy or person. Once she has your trust though, she shines bright like the moon she was named after. Happy Birthday Luna, we love you!
