Dolphin calf has infection, but doing well

Sarasota, FL -- A blood test shows that a dolphin calf being cared for at Mote Marine Laboratory has an infection, but experts say Taz is still responding well to treatment there.


The bottlenose dolphin calf, thought to be about six months old, was found stranded on a sandbar on Jan. 13.  


Mote experts say infections are common in stranded animals and Taz is being treated with antibiotics.
