There is nothing more beautiful than motherhood, no matter what animal or species is evolved. So when this new video of a mother dolphin by the name of Keo giving birth surfaced, the internets were of course going to jump all over it. The baby is the first for Keo, a 12-year-old dolphin at Dolphin Quest Hawaii. She was reportedly in labor for about an hour before giving birth to the female calf on Sept. 17. “The trust shared between Keo and her human crew members throughout the birth of this beautiful baby was extraordinary,” said Dr. Rae Stone, a marine mammal veterinarian and Dolphin Quest co-founder who was present at the birth. “Keo clearly sought out and took comfort and reassurance from her human friends. And she willingly swam up to the dock to allow veterinarians to check the baby’s heart rate with ultrasound during labor.” Both the mother and the calf are doing good. Check out the video below, but I must warn you, it is very graphic.
