Kai Dolphin, who was born at the Brookfield Zoo and is now 27 years old, has returned after a long absence and will soon be visible to the public as he adjusts to his new dolphin pals and caretakers.
Kai was returned thanks to a swap between the Texas State Aquarium and the Brookfield Zoo. The zoo trades their 8-year-old dolphin to the Texas State Aquarium to make this happen. Kai was featured in a video made by Brookfield Zoo to let his supporters know that he is adjusting well to his new surroundings and is looking forward to meeting visitors.
Kai may be the world’s oldest dolphin born in a zoo, but Fungie, a bottlenose dolphin, holds the Guinness World Record for the world’s oldest dolphin. Fungie was first observed in 1983 and is said to be at least 40 years old. According to her.com, bottlenose dolphins can live for 30 to 50 years, so Fungie has plenty of time to party.
The Brookfield Zoo has not stated when Kai will be available for people to see, but how fantastic is it to have Illinois’ oldest living dolphin just a few hours away from the Tri-States? While you’re there, check out the Ice Age Giants, which will be on show until the end of the year.
