The oldest bottlenose dolphin at Vallejo's Six Flags Discovery Kingdom has died at the age of 51.

Trainers at Six Flags say Terry had slowed down some the past couple of years and had lost most of her teeth, but was still agile and friendly.

Typically, dolphins have an average life span between 17 and 25 years, so the public and her trainers got to enjoy Terry for an extra long time.
