Dodger

Dodger was born in 1999 to Demi and is the grand-daughter of Half-fluke, the first sponging dolphin that researchers discovered. Demi began sponging in 1989 at 2 years of age, and Dodger also began sponging when she was 2 years old. Thus, Dodger is a 3rd generation sponger. She has a pretty twisted up dorsal fin and is easily recognizable. Her younger sister, Ashton, is also a sponger and the sisters spend quite a bit of time together when they aren’t busy sponging. Like all spongers, Dodger spends most of her time in deep channels where she can find her sponge tools and the fish she prefers.
