Flipper was a mascot for the Miami Dolphins from 1966 to 1968. He was situated in a fish tank in the open (east) end of the Orange Bowl, and would jump in the tank when a touchdown or field goal was scored. Flipper was removed from the stadium after 1968 to save costs.[1]

Trivia[edit]

  • In the movie Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, a live dolphin named Snowflake was featured at a Dolphins game. He also did tricks when a touchdown was scored.
