Baby dolphin was born in Las Vegas!

A baby dolphin is making a slash after being born in captivity at an underwater habitat exhibit at The Mirage resort on the Las Vegas Strip.

Officials say the male calf was born Friday at the Dolphin Habitat -- and appears to be doing well so far.

Dolphin births in captivity are rare -- and it'll take several weeks before habitat administrators will know whether the 25-pound calf will survive. They're planning a contest involving local school children to give it a name.
