Comet is a male bottlenose dolphin calf (Tursiops truncatus
) that stranded on December 20, 2005. He was found by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission beached alone on a sand bar at Deer Point Dam. Comet required round the clock care with feeds every 2 hours. Comet was deemed non-releasable due to his age and lack of survival skills by National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA).
