    Zoo Duisburg (Germany), April 2009

    A big attraction at Duisburg's zoo is the dolphinarium where trained flippers throwing balls out of the water and jumping over ropes for a fish. This is not my world. My star in that zoo was born in wild freshwater and is living a few minutes away from the "flipper circus". And here he is….

      No, tpimentel, As you can find in my tags, I know him too. His name is BUTU which means "son". And the name of his father, who died in 2006, was Apure.

      But "Boto" (and Boutu) is a name for the species of the Amazon River Dolphins.
