I’m in love with a smooth dude named Cosmo! He’s extremely talented, very happy and super intelligent … plus, he’s got a secret tickle spot!

No need for my husband to get jealous. Cosmo is a bottlenose dolphin at the Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage.

Visit the Secret Garden & Dolphin Habitat

Cosmo is one of five dolphins there who have been trained to paint as part of the facility’s Painting with the Dolphins program.

VEGAS.com recently had a chance to go behind the scenes with Lead Dolphin Care Specialist Erin Wise to learn more about the activity and how painting is mentally and physically stimulating — as well as totally safe — for these beautiful marine mammals.
