Welcome to the (Sea) World, baby!

That's momma Kendall on the left, and her new baby boy there on the right. He hasn't been named yet, but he graced Discovery Cove with his presence on February 25, 2013, and he's been doing great! 

As of yesterday, he's reached 44 pounds in weight and 44 inches in length -- that's a good start; most male bottlenose dolphins average 500 lbs and 8 feet. 

This adorable baby is Kendall's fourth and Discovery Cove's 26th. He's been swimming alongside momma and will continue do stick close by her side until he's several years old. 

There's no official word yet on when he'll be named or when guests at the exclusive park will be able to get up close and personal with him. Sea World has been known to hold naming contests, though, so check back with us for more information. 

What would you name him? Tell us in the comments.
