Araguaian boto calf videos url's

This is a link to a dropbox folder containing videos of an Araguaian boto female calf producing short two-component calls after reuniting with her mother, the call emission is followed by bubble streams, identifying the vocalizing animal. As the files are too long for uploading on Peer J database I am providing the link through this document
