        Dolphin Reproductive Behavior

        In this video segment from the Science and Technology Chat series, marine biologist Julie Wignall, director of the Mirage Resort Dolphin Habitat, describes various aspects of dolphin pregnancy, calving, and care. Staff members check a pregnant dolphin's physical health and view images of an unborn calf. The video includes footage of a dolphin birth and reveals how a dolphin calf learns to nurse underwater and swim in its mother's slipstream.

        This media asset was adapted from the Vegas PBS SAT-CHAT Series: "Dolphin-CHAT".
