It’s a girl! And now you can visit the newest dolphin at the Mirage Las Vegas.
The calf was born July 17 at Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the hotel. Immediately after being born underwater, she swam to the surface to take her first breath.
Huf n Puf, the mom, and the baby (she has yet to be named) are said to be doing well in the attraction’s birthing and research Pool. Officials say the new calf is nursing normally and bonding with her mother and her grandmother, Duchess.
Visitors can see the 2-week-old from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. They can also view the calf’s father, Lightning, in a nearby pool.
“We invite guests to see the calf and discover how our conservation efforts today will help preserve these beautiful animals in the wild for future generations to enjoy,” David Blasko, the resort’s director of animal care, said in a news release.
Tickets start at $22 for adults and $17 for children 4 to 12 years old for an All-Day Adventure Pass.
