Synchrony between a Mother-Calf Pair of Bottlenose Dolphins

Investigated the ontogeny of synchronous behavior between a newborn calf and her mother. Also examined the synchronous relationships between the calf and two unrelated adult female tankmates. Several hours of videotape were analyzed on a second by second basis as to which behavioral characteristics were most frequent during synchrony and to document changes that occurred throughout the calf’s development.
