Dolphin babies
Technically, dolphin babies are called 'calves' ('calf' for singular). They're not furry or cuddly looking like other animal babies that we go gaga over. But they are still darn cute.

Hey snacky, welcome to CC

I was looking for more pictures to add and I came across this news article from a few years ago about a rescued baby dolphin - and I don't think I've ever seen a baby dolphin like this one.

It's called a 'La Plata river dolphin' and it was 7 days old when it was rescued in Uruguay with injuries from a fishing net. I read somewhere that it still had it's umbimical cord attached when rescuers found it. Poor little guy eventually died from hypothermia and respiratory failure. They had named him Nipper.
