National Aquarium is celebrating a very special birthday today! Born at the Aquarium on May 13, 2001, Maya, one of our female dolphins, is 12 years old today!
Weight: 420 pounds
To stay healthy and happy, Maya and our other dolphins are fed a quality diet of fresh fish and given routine vitamins!
Family Tree: Daughter of Shiloh (dam) and Nalu (sire)
Maya as a calf!
How to Recognize Her: Maya is lighter in color, with a light-tipped rostrum and a very pink belly!
Trainer's Note: Maya likes to spend a lot of her time with her half-sister Chesapeake and is very playful. She loves to show off her "fast-surfing behavior" for both the trainers and our guests!
