Notes and Information

Yefrosinya is also known as Frosenka (Фросенька) or Frosya (Фрося).

While three of Frosya's Saint Petersburg herdmates were moved to the Utrish Marine Station on November 21st, 2020, I have no information at this time regarding when precisely Frosya may have arrived at the facility. Saint Petersburg's final performance was held on November 22nd, and the facility closed its doors to the public after final program bookings on the 29th -- So while I can't be certain of Frosya's transfer date, it very likely took place at some point in November.

This individual may have been transferred to the Arkhipo-Osipovsky Dolphinarium in November of 2020 and housed there for around a month prior to arriving at Utrish.

The earliest mention I have thus far been able to find of Frosya being housed at Saint Petersburg was in 2016, although it is likely that she had been housed there since her capture.

Frosya was said to be 8 years year old both on April 28th, 2020 and June 14th, 2021.
