Dolphin born at Minnesota Zoo

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Zoo says a dolphin born over the weekend is doing well.

The 30-pound calf has been swimming alongside her mother and taking synchronized breaths.

The baby's mother, Allie, is one of the zoo's three Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. The father, Semo, at age 45, is believed to be one of the oldest reproducing male dolphins in captivity.

The gender of the calf hasn't been determined. KSTP-TV reports it's expected to be on exhibit this fall.
