ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) — A pair of Atlantic bottle nose dolphins from Florida now call the Lone Star state home.

On Monday, Liko and Schooner arrived at the Texas State Aquarium in Corpus Christi.

The dolphins were born in Florida, at SeaWorld Orlando. They're 8 years old and join two other male dolphins, Kai and Shadow.

Liko and Schooner will have a few weeks to get used to their new home before being placed in public view. Daily dolphins shows will be replaced by trainer chats to give Shadow and Kai time to bond with Liko and Schooner.

Shadow is 23 years old and was born at the Minnesota Zoo. Kai is 21 years old and was born at the Brookfield Zoo in Illinois.
