Incredible underwater video shows dolphin's birth

By Austin Amuzie - Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Bringing a new life into the world is a special moment that isn't always shared. But last week, about 50 people gathered around the lagoon of Dolphin Quest Hawaii to witness something that is rarely seen: a baby dolphin being born. It's doubtful those witnesses had as good a view as you're going to get as you watch this incredible underwater video of Keo's first offspring taking its first swim:

Keo, 12, was in labor for an hour before delivering the female calf, whose proud grandmother Pele and aunt Noelani were present for the big event, according to Dolphin Quest Hawaii at Hilton Waikoloa Village. The entire video, though not the entire labor, can be viewed here on YouTube if you're interested.

The baby dolphin was nursing within four hours of birth. It should be noted that the first 30 days are critical for the newborn dolphin, and trainers plan to continue a round-the-clock watch on both baby and mother. the newborn calf is the 18th dolphin baby and the first second-generation calf to be born at the conservation and education-dedicated marine park since it opened in 1988.
