Detailed Description

Flipper is an energetic and lively animal who loves to interact with people. Her skin is soft and supple and she likes to have special exfoliating scrub used to keep it nice and soft. She eats 3 times a day, and specifically likes sardines, although she will eat other fish if you do not have sardine. She likes to play, at least once a day for up to an hour. This helps her sleep at night. She lives in the Atlantic Ocean, but visits the shore to be fed and play. She will communicate by clicking and making other Dolphin noises.
