My Story: Gambit is the fourth Flipper grandchild born at DRC. Gambit was quick to learn a lot of his high energy behaviors, and loves to show them all off for guests with music playing during a “Dolphin Dance Party” session. His laid back style and dolphinality are very similar to that of his dad, Kibby. Gambit is never in a rush to do anything. One of his favorite things to do is to go away from the dock and then be asked to do a behavior at a distance away from his trainer. He gets crazy excited when he is asked to return so he can be rewarded. Gambit is a social butterfly. He can often be found sitting in the shallow water by the causeway so he can scream and wave at guests as they walk by.

Nicknames: Gambino, Gambilicious
