A male dolphin calf was discovered alone and stuck in shallow waters under a mangrove in   Three Sisters Island in Volusia County, Florida last week. The animal rescue team from SeaWorld Orlando rescued the young dolphin.

 The calf, weighing less than 35 pounds, is thought to be no more than five days old due to its small size and probably became separated from his mother before being stranded. Luckily the dolphin appears to have no major health issues but will be manually fed with a tube every two hours to ensure he receives essential nutrients.
