LAS VEGAS (Sept. 7, 2017) – Coco, a healthy dolphin calf, is swimming her way into the hearts of guests and staff alike at The Mirage. The female calf, born July 17 at Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat, was officially named this week after an employee contest that drew 300 entries.
Coco displays the initials of MGM Resorts International’s “One Company, One Culture” employee philosophy in reverse order.
Coco, her mother Huf n Puf, grandmother Duchess and sister Bella are in the Birthing and Research pool, which is open to public viewing during the facility’s operational hours. Together, these females represent three generations of dolphins at The Mirage. Sofi, an 11-year-old female, completes the female pod. The calf’s father, Lightning, is located in another pool.
