— The Mamas and the Papas will be making an appearance at the world’s largest indoor aquarium.
A couple of years ago, it was announced that the Monterey Aquarium would be taking on a new role, becoming a place where you could come and play with baby dolphins and dolphins in their natural habitat.
Now, the Aquarium is looking to make its presence known with the release of their newest baby, an 11-month-old male named Sam.
The two-day-old baby is the first baby in the family and is the culmination of months of research and development that the aquarium has conducted.
Sam will be joined by his parents, Krista and Peter, who are both zookeepers at the aquarium.
Krista and Parker, who live in Monterey County, California, are also zookeeper assistants and have been breeding and caring for Sam for several years.
Krista is also a licensed veterinary technician and her husband Peter is a licensed veterinarian, according to the aquarium website.
Peter and Krista first heard about Sam’s birth while attending a public aquarium meeting.
They quickly found out that it was possible to adopt a baby dolphin.
Kristan has been a breeder and trainer for over 30 years, and she’s been involved with the Montaerey Aquatic Aquarium for nearly a decade.
Kristan says that she has been working with Sam for nearly two years and was surprised that the baby was born at the same time as her son’s.
“It was really unexpected, so we didn’t expect that,” Kristan told ABC News.
Kristian said she is excited to see Sam grow up with his father.
“We’ve had a lot of great times together, and I think this will be a really special time for him,” Krista said.
Kristi and Parker say they are looking forward to bringing Sam to the Aquatic Zoo and working with their son on his special day.
They have been keeping him and their two other children, ages 7 and 3, at the Aquaculture Zoo since they first adopted them there in 2013.
