The center said: “Her newborn baby looked healthy. However, he was born prematurely. On the second day of his life, he was seen floating freely with his mother.

We are happy to announce a NEW calf in J pod! J35’s new calf appeared healthy and precocious, swimming vigorously alongside his mother during his second day of life in freestyle.

The center did not reveal the sex of the new child. Tahlequah is said to be different from other whales when she was spotted.

The center said, “We walked away from him after a few minutes and prayed for him. We hope this child will be well.

Let me tell you, Tahlequah came into the limelight in the summer of 2018, when she used to walk her dead child with her head for 17 days. She swam approximately 1,000 miles from British Columbia to the Salish Sea.
