It’s a boy for Brookfield Zoo dolphin

It’s a boy!  A 40 lb boy.

Tapeko the dolphin at Brookfield Zoo gave birth to the calf yesterday.

The dolphin exhibit has been temporarily closed to allow Tapeko time to bond with her baby and other dolphins.

Tapeko is an experienced mother having successfully reared four calves, the zoo said.

Another dolphin at the zoo is expected to give birth to her first calf later this fall.

No name yet for the baby.
