How Baby Dolphins Are Born

+ enlarge
 

There are two ways that baby dolphins are born. Baby dolphins are usually born near the surface of the water. The two ways that baby dolphins are born are headfirst and being born tail first.


If the baby dolphin is born tail first, the baby dolphin will live. Once the baby dolphin is born, the mother dolphin will nudge the baby dolphin to the surface, to get fresh air. If the baby dolphin is born headfirst, the baby dolphin will probably not survive. If the baby dolphin dies from being born headfirst, the mother dolphin will leave the body of the baby dolphin behind.


Baby dolphins will need a lot of protection, once they are born, if they survive being born. Baby dolphins are born either headfirst or tail first. If a baby dolphin is born headfirst, it is a matter of life and death.
