Rescued Baby Dolphin Meets a Penguin

This is Nipper the baby dolphin. He's is only about two weeks old and he was found injured and washed up on a shore by two people walking along a beach in Uruguay.

Now this lucky guy is save and sound at NGO Rescate Fauna Marina, where they are helping raise him... and even teaching him how to swim! (See the video at the end.)

I don't know about you, but I've never seen a baby dolphin before this. And they're adorable, aren't they?

Richard Tesore, head of the NGO Rescate Fauna Marina, holds Nipper, the rescued baby dolphin.



A cute Magellan penguin, who is also being cared for at the rescue, wants to be friends with Nipper!

Here's the first video of Nipper -- he's getting a swimming lesson!


Thanks to Cute's friend Vanessa for originally passing on this cute rescued baby dolphin story!

  2. YAY! I love them, but I'm pretty sure Baby Penguin is like, "Hey, dolphin! Why you gotta steal my thunder?!?" Heh.

  3. I have never seen one before and they really are the cutest. I am surprised it didn't know how to swim. Great video.

  4. I would think dolphins were born able to swim. Interesting

  5. Oh, that doesn't look good to me. Aren't they typically much larger than that when they are born? I think this guy is just too little and he should be able to swim when he is born. I hope he makes it. :(

  15. Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you
    have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
