The Miracle Of Life: Video Of A Dolphin Giving Birth

dolphin-birth.jpg

This is a video of Keo the dolphin (NOT Echo) giving birth to a baby. Do you know what a baby dolphin is called? Whatever the mother chooses to name it. "That was dumb." Fine, they're called calves. The first two minutes is just Keo swimming around with an extra tail hanging out of her though, so skip to around 2:30 for the birthing action. SPOILER: way less traumatizing than when a human does it. Definitely would have preferred to watch this one in health class than the lady with the monster bush. I fainted, no lie.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Anne, who claims she saw a giraffe give birth at the zoo before and it was WEIRD.

    Dolphin vagina. I really had to see this.

    Lol yeah that lady with the monster bush has to be one of the most traumatic births ever caught on film, I think they just show you that in highschool to make the girlies think twice.

  • ZomBBombeR

    That was like a staples comercial, if only humans had it that easy, but I bet the whole prairy dogging bit wasn't all that comfortable, either way the momma kept clicking and chiming away like no big deal, and the baby was cute with it's floppy dorsal fin XD, and maybe someone can correct me but was the ambilical stuck in the mom 'cause I didn't see it on the calf??

  • Daw! Were those squeaks coming from the baby?

  • Ecco* the Dolphin

    Ignorance...it suits you like a glove. First find out what wild dolphins use as breeding grounds. (shallow water) Then tell me what kind of shark is dumb enough to go to a dolphins breeding ground. Specially in the case of the bottlenose dolphin like in this video, because these dolphins are very strong. And the fact that at a breeding ground dolphins outnumber sharks by alot. The shark would be bait itself. To be more clear to you so that you can wrap your little dome around it, even great white, bull and tiger sharks stay away from that shit. And finding the rare occasion in which a shark did do it and survived on internet doesn't mean that I'm wrong and that you're right, every rule has it's exceptions.

    Wow you got pretty defensive about that lol was your mom a dolphin?

  • Spartikiss

    Asininity... Fits you even better.

    Since Chase's comment didn't have an aggressive tone at all and was merely musing, there was a way you could've corrected him AND taught us all something new without making yourself look like a jerk. In the future you should try to ditch the petty condescension -- you'll be happier in the long run.

  • greenphant

    Wow, incredible. I hope they have a serious filtration system for that water though.

  • penisbelenis

    if creatures are shitting and pissing in it nonstop all day long, a bit of blood isn't a biggie

  • The birth itself wasn't too bad to watch, but I wasn't really ready for the PUFFS OF BLOOD IMMEDIATELY AFTER.

  • penisbelenis

    grow up
