Flipper spends all his time with his family and friends on the seaside, chatting, singing and his personal favourite, imitating the local seagulls. Flipper is a certified expert diver, capable of great speeds underwater, holding his breath for long periods of time, and accurately catching krill on the first attempt. When not underwater, he will often lay around the rocks with his favourite scarf and beanie in tow, dreaming of the day he can fly. His family have told him that it is simply not possible, but Flipper still dreams, after all, anything is possible if you just believe.
