Bjossa went into labor on March 8th 1995. A female calf was born at the Vancouver Aquarium. She sunk to the bottom of the pool. This was Bjossa’s 3rd pregnancy. The aquarium staff chose to leave the baby in the tank with Bjossa for a week. Once removed, the staff decided the baby had died due to the umbilical cord breaking just seconds before birth. Bjossa was placed on birth control.
