Meet Rangle

Meet Your Area Dolphins

This adult female has been quite productive, giving birth to four offspring over the past 13 years. She also has quite a story.

In 2012, Rangle was raising a two-year-old calf named Mocha. They were in shallow water and Rangle could not get out of the way of a speeding boat and was struck in the head by a propeller. The injury was so severe that no attempted rescue was made…Mother Nature would take its course. 

Rangle not only healed herself and continued to raise her two-year-old, she was pregnant and gave birth to a new calf, Bubbles, just a few months later!
