Both Hope and Winter are Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins and both are rescue animals. As we all know from the movie Dolphin Tales, Winter was rescued and would have died had it not been for the prosthetic tail that was engineered specifically for Winter! Now this beautiful female dolphin can swim once again and shares the tank with Hope, another rescued Atlantic Bottlenose dolphin.
Nicholas is the male Atlantic Bottlenose dolphin that is also at the aquarium. Nicholas was rescued together with his mom, but she was too sick to make it and now Nicholas has spent years in the aquarium. He is in his own tank since male dolphins normally live on their own, only interacting with females to mate. Nicholas has scars on his back due to severe sunburn when he and his mom were beached. Since dolphins normally are under water, the sun can cause severe damage to their sensitive skin when they are beached in shallow water, which they do when ill. It was a good thing for Nicholas that he was found and rescued.
