Researchers estimate that Clownfish was born around 1992, but she wasn’t seen with a calf until 2009. She was well known to researchers as a juvenile in 1990s because she liked to bowride from the boats. Her distinctive dorsal fin has allowed researchers to track her easily over the years. Her calf, Anemone, is still nursing.
