Kukdlaa's name translates to "bubbles." Last year, ABC7 Eyewitness News partnered with the Shedd to help find a name for the young dolphin.
Since then, Kukdlaa has been playing a lot and becoming very close to his trainer.
The aquarium set up a live stream in the Abbott Oceanarium to give people at home a glance into Kukdlaa's daily life. The stream will be up from April 17-21.
Happy birthday, Kukdlaa!
