Our Animal Family

Common Name: Bottlenose Dolphin

Scientific Name: Tursiops Truncatus

Parents: Merina / Kibby

Birth Date: November 22nd, 1997

Defining Trait: Wide, dark eyes/pink belly/sometimes carries her favorite toy, a hula hoop

My Story: Pandora is the oldest offspring of Merina and has several siblings: Calusa, Cayo, Flagler, and Windley (also Merina’s kids) and Delta and Gambit (Kibby’s kids). She is herself a mother with two daughters - Luna and Atocha. Pandora excels at studying human behavior and is an avid people watcher. This results in a lady who has high standards when it comes to her relationships with humans – she expects YOU to entertain HER! Always smiling and calling out for attention, Pandora is a party waiting to happen.

Nicknames: Peanut, P, Pandorable

Our Mission - Through education, research and rescue, Dolphin Research Center promotes peaceful coexistence, cooperation and communication between marine mammals, humans and the environment we share with the well being of DRC's animals taking precedence.
