The tail... I can see the tail!

Fantastic to see how lively the baby dolphin is the moment it's born.

Interesting how the small dolphin knows how do swim, and to follow his mom, and stuff like that. It's like he is pre-programmed to do so :D If you look at a human baby when he is born he doesn't know what the heck is going on... I always wondered that... it's like when a small chick cracks the shell to get out of the egg, already knows how to walk and who's his mom.... this world is full of mysteries... what a beautiful world to live in :)

Dunno Geekster, a human baby knows its mom's voice, responds to music it heard in the womb, knows how to suckle etc. Luckily we don't need to be mobile straight away, our parents protect us from predators.

One thing that occurred to me, watching the video, was that a lot of blood ends up in the water. That's got to be of interest to any nearby sharks. I'd guess that a dolphin pod would be at high alert whenever a calf is born.

#3 Human babies can also instinctively swim immediately after birth. Google underwater birth.

"During their first year of life, babies will calmly and happily paddle underwater, gazing around with eyes wide open. When they need to breathe, they naturally paddle toward the surface of the water before taking a breath. Babies instinctively know not to breathe while their heads are still submerged underwater. They wait until they reach the surface of the water before breathing. It seems to be only later that humans lose these instincts and become more prone to drowning."

If you compare human babies to other animal babies, our babies really look helpless, almost pathetic. The difference is that the potential of human babies is a lot higher than those of other animals. Animals dont "learn" many new things while they grow up. Look at what we do... we learn to walk, speak, communicate in many different complex ways, build huge things, change the whole planet for better or worse etc etc.
