my anime love is kyo sohma from fruits basket i have a huge obsession with orcas they belong in the sea not in a tank if captivity was better for them then why do most orcas die in there teens or 20s in the wild males can live up to 60 70 to 90 years old and females can live up to 80 to 105 years old orcas are incredibly smart social sensitive beings orcas swim over 100 miles a day in the wild all marine parks such as seaworld suck and watch blackfish that proves it
icon is a orca called lolita please help free her watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jypGKNw5p04
seaworld orca profiles
Sea World San Diego
Keet is a mature bull orca atSan Diego and he was the first 2nd generation orca to be born in captivity. 18 months after Keet’s birth, his mother got pregnant again and she was moved away from her son.
Keet became depressed after her move but he was cared for by another female, Haida II*; he also found great playmates in Kyuquot and Katerina*. When he was 5 years old, he was moved to San Diego and here he met many more orcas and got along well with everyone, including his younger brother, Keto. Keet, Keto and Sumar* were moved to Ohio 5 months later to replace the females, Kayla and Winnie* but their stay here was short, only one season and he was moved back to San Diego whislt the other two males were sent to San Antonio.
Keet is known as a very charming whale and most of the females prefer him over the dominant males. He has fathered 2 calves, Kalia and Halyn* and also might have been the sire of Unna’s stillborn and Kayla miscarried calf.
Keet’s gentle and docile personality is also well-liked by the trainers; he has never attacked any of his trainers or showed aggression to the other orcas. Keet is not really playful and likes to spend his free time sleeping, but he is really energetic and attentive when it comes to performances and training.
Keet is also the welcome whale for new trainers and orcas.
Corky is the one of the oldest orcas in captivity and the only one surviving from the captures of the Northern Resident population; also she has had one of the saddest lives of all orcas in captivity.
After being separated from her mother at the age of 3, she lived with other orcas in a small tank at Marineland of the Pacific, the other two orcas who moved with her died 3 years after capture and she spent most of her life with an orca bull named Orky II*.
When Corky reached sexual maturity, she became pregnant. Her first calf only survived 18 days and after giving birth to 7 calves, with none surviving longer than 46 days, she stopped ovulating.
During her last pregnancy, she and Orky II* were moved to Sea World San Diego after Marineland was sold. She settled in well to her new environment, however she has had issues with some of the icelandic orcas. At Sea World, she was rammed into by another orca, Kandu V, who later died from injuries and Corky swam away with a damaged eye.
Corky has a wonderful personality and is the “Welcome orca” at SWC, not only for new trainers but also for new orcas. She cared for many young orcas, that were separated from their mothers.
On December 2nd, 2014, Kalia gave birth to her first calf after almost 2 hours of labor. Kasatka, Nakai, and Makani were present for labor. The calf began to nurse soon after the birth and is developing well.
In January 2015, SeaWorld offered the public to vote for a name for thim via Facebook: Nasia, Kissa and Amaya. Amaya was the name chosen with 7,000 votes.
Orkid is rumoured to be the most intelligent orca in captivity. She knows many signals and is really smart. But despite of her intelligence she can be also rather aggressive. She attacked many of her trainers and now like Kasatka, she is being watched. It’s not sure if she will be re-introduced to waterworks again.
In her life she had to deal with many losses; her father died just 3 days after her birth and her mother died after a fight with Corky at the age of 11 months. She grew up under the wonderful care of Corky and Kasatka; she also bonded with an orca male at her age, Splash*. Unfortunately Splash* died in 2005, which affected Orkid very much.
she has never got pregnant yet. She was AI’ed several times but it hasn’t taken so far. She has proven to be a good mother, when she cares for Kasatka’s calves. So hopefully she will have her own calves someday.
To his fans, Makani is renowned as a young and mischievous orca with a tendency to interact with guests in the underwater viewing area. He is frequently found spending time socializing with his mother Kasatka and siblings Nakai and Kalia, and especially enjoys ‘fish baiting’ with Kalia. Makani is the product of artificial insemination. SeaWorld sent representatives to Mundo Marino in Argentina to direct the collection of semen from Kshamenk in order to increase their orca gene pool. They then successfully impregnated Kasatka at SeaWorld San Diego making Makani a genetic hybrid. Makani will grow up with his tank mates; meanwhile, Kshamenk lives a solitary life swimming up to 500 turns per hour in a small pool in Argentina.
ikaika was born to Katina and Tilikum at SeaWorld Orlando. He is Katina's 5th calf. When Ikaika arrived, Katina was with several of her calves, including Kalina, Taku, and Unna. He and Taku became very close very quickly. Ike, as he was nicknamed, became a favorite at the park for being so interactive with park guests. Eventually Ike began performing with Taku and Katina in shows.
In 2006, at the age of 4, Ike was sent to Marineland Ontario. Here he met Nootka 5, Kiska, and Kiska's daughter, Athena. It was said that Ikaika was on what was called a "breeding loan", but being only 4 years old, he was not even close to being sexually mature, as bull orcas do not reach sexual maturity until 15 years old.
In 2008, Nootka died, and in 2009, Athena followed. Both orcas died of unknown causes, though it is assumed that pneumonia was the culprit. After the death of both her tank mates, Kiska became very depressed. Because of Ikaika's young age, he was still very playful, and due to this, he became somewhat of a nuisance to Kiska, so they were separated for periods of time until Kiska recovered.
Ikaika and Kiska performed in the main pool, only participating in what Marineland called "Splash Sessions". Ikaika thrived and guests loved watching him because he would perform behaviors he had learned at SeaWorld that Kiska did not know. He was also a great splasher.
SeaWorld eventually asked for Ikaika to be returned to them, and when Marineland refused, Seaworld took them to court, accusing Marineland of not meeting SeaWorld's veterinary care, husbandry care, or training obligations while Ikaika was in their facility. SeaWorld won the case and Marineland was ordered to by the Ontario Superior Court to return Ikaika and to pay $255,000 in compensation to SeaWorld for legal expenses.
Upon returning to SeaWorld, Ikaika was raked and had a rough start, but has made friends in Corky 2, Ulises, and Orkid. He is now doing very well at San Diego and performing in shows daily.
Ulises is the oldest male orca in captivity and is the only bull in captivity where his dorsal fin is partially flopped. He is one of the most athletic orca bulls in captivity and although he is not the biggest orca, he can still jump as high as the more slender female orcas, and can lift his entire body out of the water (unlike other male orcas).
In the past, he was one of the few adult male orcas that did waterworks with his trainers and he has never shown any sign of aggression towards his trainers.
For 14 years, Ulises spent his time with dolphins and when he arrived at SeaWorld, he became one of the more dominant orcas which is unusual as male orcas are usually more submissive, but Ulises has a higher rank in dominance.
It was rumoured for many years that he is not capable of siring calves however Ulises become a father, when a young female in France named Wikie was A.I.ed with his semen in 2010 and she successfully gave birth to a son, Moana in March 2011 who is growing up fast.
Kalia was born to Kasatka and Keet at SeaWorld San Diego. She is also known as "Great Grandbaby Shamu", as her father is the son of the Original Baby Shamu, Kalina.
As the daughter of the matriarch and dominant orca of San Diego, Kalia has been able to get away with pretty much whatever she wants. From a young age, she was known to be very independent and loved interacting with park guests. Being the daughter of the park's matriarch, it's no surprise that Kalia herself is very dominant. She has shown this dominance through aggression toward some of the other whales, but over all, she is a very well-behaved whale.
She was one of the few young whales trained for waterworks before they were banned. She has never been involved in trainer aggression.
In Summer of 2013, Kalia was artificially inseminated at age 8. On December 2nd, 2014, Kalia gave birth to her first calf after almost 2 hours of labor. Kasatka, Nakai, and Makani were present for labor. Nakai was called out of the show pool just as Kalia gave birth at 12:34pm. She began nursing within hours and has bonded with her calf.
Nakai is the first orca who was successfully conceived through AI (artificial insemination). He is a playful young orca who enjoys watching guests at the underwater viewing area at San Diego. He has done that since he was a baby orca and was never afraid to leave Kasatka’s side. He has had great companions with the other young orcas at San Diego. Now he also enjoys to spend time with the maturing and mature bulls.
He is one of the stars during the show performances, he has learned many waterwork behaviours and liked to show them off. Currently he is learning more advanced behaviours including the vertical spin, a very difficult behaviour.
In 2012, Nakai was involved in a serious accident when, in order to avoid another whale, Nakai scraped his chin against a barrier. This left an area of his chin exposed and through the best medical treatment that SeaWorld could offer (inc. laser surgery), Nakai is making a remarkable recovery.
As his ever growing dorsal and curling flukes show, Nakai is well on his way to becoming a mature male.
Like many orcas, Kasatka was captured in 1978 along with several other orcas and was sent to Hafnarfjordur where she was trained and waited to be sold on. It wasn't long before she was purchased by Sea World and along with 3 other orcas, she was moved to Sea World San Diego she met the two resident orcas, Winston* and Canuck II*.
Kasatka proved to be a reliable performer and once she was accustomed to her new environment, she was moved to Ohio to become the main performer, alongside her old friend, Katina. Katina and Kasatka performed together for 4 years at Ohio before Katina became pregnant with her first calf and was moved to Orlando. As a result, Katina was replaced with Kahana* and Kasatka was again reunited with an orca she was captured with. These orcas performed together until 1987 at Ohio and when the newest park opened in San Antonio, Kasatka was sent there and it was here she met Kotar* again and Kenau*.
During her time at San Antonio, Kasatka learned how to raise a calf as Kenau had a baby girl in November 1988 named Kayla. When Kasatka was sexually mature, she mated with Kotar and was soon expecting her first calf. She was sent to San Diego in 1990 and has not moved since.
Kasatka has been the matriarch of the SeaWorld San Diego pod since moving back in 1990, but she is not the dominant female there; she shares that role with Orkid. In 1991, she gave birth to her first calf in front of a large crowd and this calf was later named Takara.
Kasatka is a very gentle and protective female towards her offspring. She was the first orca to be successfully AI’ed in 2000 and 18 months later she gave birth to a healthy male orca named Nakai.
Despite her gentle personality she can be quite aggressive towards tainers and she was involved in many incidents with humans. Luckily no one was seriously hurt but as of now waterworks are stopped with her, although she had great potential.
She knows many behaviours and is a really good performer.
Shouka was the first successful birth in Europe and the pride of Marineland Antibes. She got along with everyone at the park, despite her extremely dominant personality. She spent most of her time with her father Kim II*.
it was decided to transfer the young orca to a park in the USA. Rumour has it that Shouka was owned by Six Flags and due to several purchases and sales of parks, Shouka has ended up in California, the former Marine World of Africa.
She is an amazing performer, knows many tricks and puts all her energy in behaviours. Although she was first trained for waterworks, trainers do not enter the water with her, possibly due to her extremely moody and dominant nature.
During her time at Marineland she witnessed many orca births and cared for her siblings very well, which makes her the perfect candidate to breed and having calves on her own. But as of now there isn’t any male joining her anytime soon, Shouka has not had a calf yet. Kshamenk was supposed to join her in 2002; due to denied authorization to transfer him.
On August 20, 2012 she was transferred to Sea World San Diego and is doing very well in her new environment.
Kayla was the first orca to be born at Sea World San Antonio were she met Kasatka, Kotar and of course, her mother. She thrived at the park but sadly moved to Ohio when she was only 2 years old.
At Ohio, she met another young orca named Katerina who was born in Sea World Orlando 22 days before. The two orcas performed during season together at Ohio until 1994 when an orca from Orlando joined them, Winnie*. Kayla got on well with Winnie and were often seen together and continued to perform together until 1999 and they were moved back to San Antonio.
At San Antonio, Kayla and Winnie* met a dominant female Haida II* and it wasn't long before Winnie* was sharing this role; this made Kayla one of the more submissive females. She never fought for dominance when Haida* died, but after Winnie’s* death, Kayla took over the role as a dominant female.
She was doing really well and ran the park with all the young orcas and when Keet arrived at San Antonio in 2004, both got along really well and soon mated with each other and it wasn't long before Kayla got pregnant and gave birth to her first calf, Halyn*. Unfortunately she rejected her calf, due to a lack of experience with orca calves and a decision was made to move her to Orlando in order to learn how to care for a calf. This decision was likely to have been made to the fact she was expecting her second calf but sadly, soon after her move Kayla suffered a miscarriage in March 2007. No one knows if SeaWorld plans to get her pregnant once again but it’s also uncertain if Kayla will ever return to San Antonio.
Kayla has integrated very well into the Orlando group and she often performs with the younger orcas. She has been very gentle with the youngsters and the elders. She seems to get along very well with Katina and used to do most of the "double waterworks" with her.
Trua is a young male who was born on Thanksgiving in 2005. Like his mother and many members of his family, he is really interactive and loves to watch people through the glass at Orlando's underwater viewing area; sometimes he does that for hours.
Malia has become a good friend to him and he has taught her many things he already knew. When he is with Tilikum, he even plays with the huge bull. Trua was often seen performing with his mother, but he did some behaviours on his own.
In February 2009, his mother Takara was transferred to San Antonio, leaving him in the care of the other females. Despite his mother moving away, Trua is doing very well and is often seen with Kayla.
In 2007, Taima* gave birth to her first daughter and they were continuously watched by their trainers since birth, because Taima* showed aggression to both of her previous calves. Taima* accepted Malia after the birth, nursed her and was really gentle to her daughter.
Malia is a quite independent calf; she used to leave Taima*’s protective side to check out the other parts of the tank. Trua has been a good influence to her, she caught up new behaviours quickly from him and even did some tricks on her own. In June/July 2008, Malia had been separated from her mother, because Taima* was a bit moody and disrupted the shows. Malia and Taima* were eventually put with Kalina*.
Since her mother's death, Malia often is seen with Trua and Nalani whom she has become good friends with and often perfoms in shows. Nalani is often seen performing alongside her playmates Trua and Malia.
Makaio is a 5 year old male orca who lives at SeaWorld Orlando. He was born on October 9, 2010. His mother is Katina and his father is Tilikum, making him the 4th calf born to the pair and Katina's 7th calf. He is the youngest orca living in Orlando and the most recent to be born at the park. He was born just after Katina's first calf Kalina had passed away on October 4th.
Makaio joins the other orcas in shows though he doesn't know how to do many behaviors yet. He is starting to learn more advanced behaviors as he grows. He is most often seen with his mom Katina, though he is becoming more independant. He enjoys being with the other young orcas and his older sisters Nalani and Malia can often be seen helping Katina care for him. He spends a lot of time playing with them as well.
Tilikum is SeaWorld’s most successful breeding male, fathering at least 21 calves. Sadly, he has not met many of them due to transfers and through AI (artificial insemination).
To the public, he is known as the most dangerous orca in captivity because he was involved in threee incidents in which resulted in human fatalities. Despite his bad reputation, he has never shown any premeditated aggression to his trainers or to the other orcas and is often described as gentle, friendly orca.
Tilikum is often on his own for many reasons but in 2007, he was given the chance to be with his new daughter, Malia however Taima kept her distance so he was alone once again until July 2008, when he met Takara and her son Trua for the first time.
Trua, his first grandson is a great playmate for him and keep's Tilikum on his "flukes". Tilikum became a father again in January 2010 when Takara gave birth to his 20th offspring, Sakari, and again in October 2010 to Katina's 7th calf, Makaio.
Katina was captured in 1978 along with several other orcas and was sent to Hafnarfjordur where she was trained and waited to be sold on. It is presumed she was purchased by Sea World but for some reason was sent to Marineland Ontario. Here, she met the three resident orcas, Kanduke, Knootka* and Kandu II* and she was named Kandu VI.
6 months later, she was moved to Sea World Ohio and was renamed to Katina; here she met Kandu V* and Kenau*. After the park's season ended, all three orcas were shipped back to Sea World San Diego and it was here she was reunited with orcas she was captured with , Kasatka and Kotar* (it is unknown if she met Shawn* again).
For the following 3 years, she was moved every spring to Ohio to perform alongside Kasatka and when she became pregnant by Winston* in the spring of 1984, it was decided to move her to Sea World Orlando; and this is where she has remained ever since. It was also here, at Orlando where Katina made history by giving birth to her first offspring, Kalina* in 1985.
Katina is the matriarch of the SWF pod even though she isn't the most dominant female and Katina always had a close bond to her calves. Many of her calves, including Kalina, were taken away from her at an early age, except for Taku*; he was her first son and was a mommy's boy. They were really close and always together which her close relationship ended up in a calf, Nalani and Nalani is the first surviving inbreed orca calf in captivity and she is doing very well.
Raising 7 calves, indicate Katina's great motherly abilities. But she isn't only a great mother, but also one of SeaWorld's best performers and she does most of the advanced waterworks and complex behaviours.
Nalani is the first surviving inbred orca calf in captivity as she is the result of Mother/Son mating. Currently she is doing pretty well. She is really active and joins her mother in shows doing many bows and other simple tricks. She also interacts with other orcas of the pod. Despite of her activeness she also shows signs of dependence on her mother.
For the first months after her birth, she had troubles to stay with trainers during shows. But she made progress and even does some behaviours on her own or with Kayla. Nalani is often seen performing alongside her playmates Trua and Malia.
Sea World San Antonio
Kyuquot, also known as Ky, was the first calf sucessfully born at Sealand of the Pacific. Several months before his birth, the orcas were involved in an incident, in which a trainer was killed. Soon the park was closed and Ky and his mother Haida II* were transferred to SeaWorld San Antonio. Ky was really close to his mother and often stuck close on her side. After her death in 2001 he became depressed but he did eventually bond with other orcas but often shows his dominance over them.
Kyuquot is a really good performer and knows many spectacular types of behaviours. He underwent a growth spurt the past years but despite his weight, he easily lift his 9,000 lb body completely out of the water. Ky has done waterworks with his trainers, but due to an incident in 2004, those were stopped. He can be moody at times; he often refused to do behaviours in the past, that could be the reason why waterworks weren’t reintroduced to him.
Sakari is a 5 year old female orca living at SeaWorld San Antonio where she was born on January 7, 2010. Her mother is Takara and her father is Tilikum. She is the 2nd calf born to the pair. Unlike her sister Kohana, who was conceived through artificial insemination between Takara and Tilikum, Sakari was conceived naturally.
She lives with her mom, a half sister and two half brothers and can often be seen performing with Takara and Kamea. She spent a lot of time with her older half sister Unna before she passed away. She is learning more behaviors now that she is getting older and is a very smart and playful whale. Now that she is getting older, she is starting to learn the more complex behaviors.
is a 2 year old female orca who was born at SeaWorld San Antonio on December 6, 2013 at 12:08 am. Her mother is Takara and her father is Kshamenk via artificial insemination.
SeaWorld announced that she had been named Kamea on February 3, 2014. Kamea means "precious one" in Hawaiian. She can often be seen swimming alongside her mother or half sister Sakari, though she can be seen with any member of the pod.
Takara is one of the most playful orcas in captivity. Since she was a young orca, she came to the glass and checked out the visitors staring at her and in 2002 her life changed when she gave birth to her first calf Kohana.
With the help of mother Kasatka, Takara finally learned how to care for a calf. But unlike many other adult orcas, she is still a playful orca and her interactiveness has been passed onto her calves, Trua, Kohana and Sakari; which are also extremely interactive.
While she lived at San Diego, she was known as a spoiled orca who liked to annoy the other orcas at the park. Since her birth she was like the princess in California as Takara
was the child of the matriarch there, so she could do whatever she wanted.
After her move to Florida in 2004, she had to get used to a new social structure, but she fitted in well and got along really well with Katina and the other females.
On February 5, 2009, Takara was moved to San Antonio and joined 4 orcas there and in January 2010 gave birth to her third calf, Sakari. She is doing well and has fitted in the social structure at San Antonio very well, and is one of the dominant orcas.
Tuar is a 16 year old male orca who lives at SeaWorld San Antonio. His father is Tilikum and his mother is Kalina. He was born at SeaWorld Orlando on June 22, 1999.
In November 2000, another male orca was born who was named Tekoa. Tekoa's mother became aggressive towards him and he was soon also being raised by Tuar's mother. The two became very close and spent a lot of time together. After he was transferred to San Antonio, Tuar and Tekoa drifted apart and Tekoa left several years later. Tuar has remained in Texas since. He is quite dominant for a male orca. He is also growing very fast with his recent growth spurt. Tuar used to perform waterworks until they were stopped in 2010
Kohana is a 13 year old female orca who was born at SeaWorld San Diego on May 3, 2002. Her mother is Takara and her father is Tilikum. Kohana was the 2nd orca calf to be born as a result of artificial insemination. While she was born at SeaWorld San Diego, her father lived at SeaWorld Orlando.
Kohana and Takara both moved to Orlando in 2004. Kohana found playmates in her half siblings Ikaika and Skyla. Kohana and Skyla moved to Loro Parque in 2006 and have lived there since.
Kohana gave birth to her first calf on October 13, 2010 and he was named Adán. He was the first Killer Whale born in Loro Parque and also the first to be born in Spain. Sadly, after birth Kohana showed no interest in her calf and he had to be raised by the trainers. He has now been introduced to Kohana and the other orcas but she plays no maternal role for him.
Kohana gave birth to her second calf, a female named Victoria, on August 3, 2012. Skyla was present for the birth to assist Kohana. After a 2 hour labor, the calf was born. Kohana spent a little bit of time with her calf but the trainers had to step in and raise her as they did with Adan. Victoria passed away on June 16, 2013.
After Kohana had Adan, she was separated from Keto for the next few months. Keto is very attached to Kohana and didn't take the separation well. Soon after the trainers allowed them to reunite Kohana became pregnant with Victoria.
Kohana is the dominant female at Loro Parque but she doesn't know how to run a pod. She never learned how a dominant orca is supposed to take care of her pod or how to take care of a calf and assume the role of a matriarch.
Kohana is a very smart orca and knows many behaviors. She used to do waterworks until 2009 when they were stopped, though she has never shown any aggression to her trainers. She is a very interactive orca and will often play with visitors.
Adán is a 5 year old male orca who was born on October 13, 2010, though Loro Parque celebrates his birthday on the 12th, which is Spain's national holiday. His mother is Kohana and his father is Keto. He was the first orca to be born in Loro Parque and also the first orca to be born in Spain.
Sadly after birth, his mother Kohana rejected him as she didn't know how to take care of a calf. He is also slightly inbred as Kohana's mother Takara, is Keto's half sister. This combination means Adán could be up to 6.25% inbred.
Adán has been introduced to all of the orcas living in Loro Parque. The first whale he was introduced to was Keto. He was the first to be introduced to his younger sister, Victoria, and the two could often be seen together. Around September 2012, Adán started appearing in shows along with the older orcas. He can be seen with any pod member, though he is most often seen with Kohana, Skyla and Morgan.
Keto is a 20 year old male orca who lives at Loro Parque. He was born at SeaWorld Orlando on June 17, 1995 to mother Kalina and father Kotar.
Keto is one of the few orcas to have lived at all four SeaWorld's that have been opened. He is rather dominant for a male orca as males are usually more submissive.
In 2006, Keto moved to Loro Parque along with three other orcas. Since then, he has sired two calves with Kohana; Adan in 2010 and Victoria in 2012. Keto is Kohana's half Uncle which makes their calves 6.25% inbred.
Skyla is an 11 year old female orca who lives at Loro Parque. She was born on February 9, 2004 at SeaWorld Orlando to mother Kalina and father Tilikum.
From the early months of Skyla's life, she was a very independant calf like her older siblings. She spent a lot of time with Kalina and soon found friends in Ikaika and Kohana.
Skyla and Kohana became very close, and in 2006 they both were moved to Loro Parque with Keto and Tekoa. Skyla grew up doing whatever she wanted due to the lack of a maternal figure. She often shows her dominance towards the other orcas. She has also been involved in incidents with trainers and was stopped from performing waterworks.
Despite her nature towards the pod, she is a very smart and reliable performer. She knows many advanced behaviors and is still learning. She can often be seen performing with Kohana and Keto, and occassionally Tekoa.
Tekoa is a 15 year old male orca who lives at Loro Parque. He was born at SeaWorld Orlando on November 8, 2000 to mother Taima and father Tilikum. Kalina was present for the birth and assisted Taima through labor.
As with her first calf Sumar, Taima showed aggression towards Tekoa at a very young age. The two were separated after a few months and Tekoa was raised mostly by Kalina with the assistance of Katina. Kalina had given birth to her son Tuar in 1999 and the half brothers became very close. Even after Kalina had another calf named Skyla, she still looked after Tekoa.
Soon after however, he was transfer to SeaWorld San Antonio along with Tuar in April 2004. Tekoa moved again to Loro Parque in February 2006, leaving Tuar behind.
Tekoa has remained at Loro Parque since. In 2007, he was involved in an incident with a trainer which resulted in him having certain protocals put in place to follow with trainers. He knows many dry work behaviors though, and is a great performer.
Tekoa is a submissive orca in the pod and has received many rake marks from the over dominant Kohana and Skyla. He tends to spend a lot of time with Keto, but can be seen with any member of the pod.
Morgan is an 8 year old female orca who lives at Loro Parque. She was rescued on June 23, 2010 in The Netherlands after being found by a fisherman. She was rescued by the Dolfinarium Harderwijk where she recovered from extreme starvation and other illnesses.
She remained there for a year and a half in a tiny pool that was meant for her recovery. She was in need of a larger tank as she was growing and her tank was much to small to house an orca. She also needed other orcas for companionship. In November 2011, it was decided to send her to Loro Parque in Spain. They had 5 other orcas and had a much larger facility to house her in. She arrived on November 29th.
non seaworld orcas
Keijo is a 2 year old male orca who was born at Marineland Antibes on November 20, 2013. His mother is Wikie and his father is Valentin. This makes Keijo up to 12.5% inbred as Wikie and Valentin are half siblings. Valentin though, has never been confirmed as his father by Antibes. Keijo is a very playful calf, often playing with his trainers or the other orcas. He can often be seen copying what the other orcas do during shows. He loves playing with his older half-brother Moana and has already learned a lot from him
Moana is a 4 year old male orca who was born at Marineland Antibes on March 16, 2011. His mother is Wikie and his father is Ulises.
Moana was the 3rd orca calf to be born as a result of artificial insemination. While his mother lived in France, his father lived at SeaWorld San Diego in the US. Initially, Antibes announced Moana was a girl and held a poll to name him. In July 2011, it was announced he was a boy, though Antibes kept the name.
Moana is extremely smart. Before he turned one he could already do behaviors other orcas his age couldn't and does many behaviors that take others years to learn. Many of the behaviors he has learned by simply watching the other orcas at the park and doing what they do. Among these, he has learned to do back bows, underwater somersaults, a traveling breach, and much more. Many he wouldn't have even trained for until he was at least a few years old.
Moana can be seen performing with the entire group or even doing some parts of the show by himself. He is independant, but is still close to his mom. He also enjoys spending time with Inouk and Keijo.
Wikie is the last calf to Sharkan* and Kim II* at Marineland. She is very playful and sometimes comes to the glass to 'watch' the guests. She is also a really good performer and knows many signals. She performs basic and complex behaviours, alone or with other orcas. Although she is trained for waterworks, she is rarely used; she is really attentive and enjoys the trainers’ company.
Wikie was the youngest orca to be successfully AI'ed in 2009 when Sea World and Marineland joined together in the mammoth task of overseas AI'ing of Orcas. Wikie's first calf, Moana was born on March 16, 2011 who is growing up fast.
Wikie gave birth to her second calf on November 20th 2013 and mother and calf are reported to be doing well.
She is the current matriarch of Marineland pod.
Inouk is a young male orca who was born to mother Sharkan and father Kim 2 at Marineland France in Antibes. He was born in 1999 and was the 3rd calf to be born at the park.
In 2005, his father died, and 4 years later, his mother followed, which was very hard for a barely 10 year old Inouk because he was very close to his mother and spent the majority of his time with her. Sharkan was the main waterworks whale, and after her death, Inouk took her place. He was a very reliable performer with the trainers and was not involved in any trainer aggression.
Inouk is a very curious whale, and this causes him to constantly watch and follow park guests at the glass and interact with them. It has made him a very popular attraction at the park, despite his naughtiness and inattentiveness when it came to his trainers.
He is still quite small as he has not reached maturity yet, and he spends a lot of time with his nephews Moana and Keijo.
Kamogawa Sea World
Lovey is a 17 year old female orca who lives Kamogawa Sea World. She was born there on January 11, 1998 to Stella and Bingo. She was the first orca calf to be successfully born in Japan.
Lovey has witnessed the birth of three of her younger sisters, so she already had experience with helping her mother take care of a calf before she gave birth for the first time. She gave birth to her first calf, a male named Earth, on October 13, 2008. Earth moved to Port of Nagoya on December 7, 2015.
on November 2011, it was announced that she was expecting her second calf. She successfully gave birth to her daughter, Luna, on July 19, 2012. Her younger sister Lara assisted her during labor and Luna is doing well. She can be seen alongside her mother in shows. Now that Kamogawa has no males for there females to breed with, they have began training Lovey for artificial insemination. Kamogawa will most likely work with SeaWorld to find a male.
In December 2011, her mother moved to Port of Nagoya and Lovey took over the role of the matriarch and dominant orca. She is a very loving whale and performs waterworks with her trainers. She has been a great mom to her calves.
Lara is a 14 year old female orca who lives at Kamogawa Sea World where she was born on February 8, 2001. Her mother is Stella and her father is Bingo.
Lara spends a lot of time with Lovey, Earth, and Luna. Lara has witnessed many births and has helped her mother and Lovey take care of their calves. Lara does very good with calves as she has had a lot of experience around them. She is also trained in waterworks
Lara has yet to have a calf, but she is currently being trained for artificial insemination. She will most likely be inseminated with a SeaWorld male.
Ran 2, commonly referred to as Ran, is a 9 year old female orca who lives at Kamogawa Sea World where she was born on February 25, 2006 to Stella and Bingo.
Ran grew up under the care of her mother Stella, who was assisted by Ran's sisters Lovey and Lara. In 2008, Lovey gave birth to her own calf, Earth. After Earth's birth, Bingo, Stella and Ran all moved to the back tank in the orca stadium.
In November 2011, it was announced that Ran's mother and Lovey were both pregnant again and due in late 2012. It was decided to send Bingo, Stella and Ran to the Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium. They moved in December 2011, with Ran moving a couple of days before her parents.
Ran could often be seen with her family. In November 2012, Stella gave birth to her fifth calf with Ran's assistance. Ran did very well with her little sister Lynn. Ran has now began cycling, and on December 7th she was moved back to Kamogawa. Kamogawa says it plans to artificially inseminate its females in the future.
Luna is a 3 year old female orca who was born on July 19, 2012 at Kamogawa Sea World. Her mother is Lovey and her father is Oscar. Luna can be seen swimming alongside her mother and Lara during performances. On November 23, 2012, it was announced she had been named Luna. Kamogawa nicknamed her Mars until she was named. Luna can be seen alongside Lovey and Lara. After her birth, Oscar was moved to the back tank. It is unknown if she ever met her father, as he died when she was 5 months old. She spent time with Earth when she was younger, but because he would play too rough with her, they were often kept separated. On December 7, 2015, she met her aunt Ran 2 when she moved back to Kamogawa.
Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium
Stella is a 29 year old female orca who lives at the Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium. She was captured from Iceland in October 1987.
Stella has had five calves and has been a great mother. She was the matriarch and dominant orca at Kamogawa Sea World until she moved to Nagoya where she continued those roles.
Stella's first calf was Lovey who was born on January 11, 1998. Lovey has had two calves of her own now.
Her second calf was Lara who was born on February 8, 2001.
Her third calf was Sarah who was born on May 31, 2003. Sarah died on April 26, 2006 just before her 3rd birthday from an unknown illness.
stella had just given birth to her fourth calf, Ran 2, when Sarah had died. Ran was born on February 25, 2006 and was Stella's fourth daughter. She was Stella's only calf to move with her to Nagoya. Ran 2 moved back to Kamogawa on December 7, 2015.
She gave birth to her fifth calf Lynn, another girl, born on November 13, 2012. Bingo and Ran were present for the calf's birth. It was originally thought Lynn had been named Rin.
Stella is a sweet and gentle whale. She did waterworks at Kamogawa but they did not continue them at Nagoya. She has never shown any aggression to her trainers and is a very loving mother.
Nagoya Lynn is a 3 year old female orca who was born on November 13, 2012. Her mother is Stella and her father is Bingo. Bingo and Ran assisted Stella through the birth. Lynn is the first orca to be born at Nagoya.
Unlike most killer whale births, Lynn was born head first, while most are born tail first. What makes this even more unique is that Stella's fourth calf, Ran, was also born head first.
On June 17, 2013, it was announced she had been named Lynn after 7 months of Nagoya choosing from names that had been suggested by the public. It was orginally thought that she had been named Rin.
Earth is a 7 year old male orca who lives at the Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium. He was born at Kamogawa Sea World on October 13, 2008. His mother is Lovey and his father is Oscar.
On July 19, 2012, Earth became a big brother when his mom gave birth to his sister Luna. After she was born he showed a lot of interest in her. The two often played together, but being larger, Earth would sometimes play too rough with his little sister. Lovey would displace him for this and eventually he was spending more time in the back pool away from Lovey, Lara and Luna.
On December 7, 2015, Earth was moved to Port of Nagoya where he joined his grandmother Stella and aunt Lynn.
personality despite her incredibly sad past and her incredibly poor living conditions lolita is very gentle friendly selfless kinds sensitive and submissive for a female orcas female orcas are normaly more dominant
lolita, also known as Tokitae, is the oldest orca in captivity at 51 born in 1964 . She was captured at the age of 6 years from the coast of Washington, USA. She was caught along with 80 other orcas. Many orcas died, the others were released and 7 of them were sold to Marine Parks. Lolita is now the only survivor from this capture and the only southern resident orca being held in captivity.
A month after her capture, she was sent to the Miami Seaquarium to join the bull orca Hugo; Lolita was not kept with Hugo until 1972. They spent almost 10 years together, performing in a tiny tank. Since Hugo’s death in 1980, Lolita is alone; pacific white-sided dolpins are her companions now.
Although it was promised to build a new orca tank, constructions never began and Lolita still spends her days in a very small tank. Animal activists try to free her because of her poor living conditions. Trainers give her much attention and love, which could be the reason why she survived throughout the years.
Kiska is a 39 year old female orca who lives at Marineland Ontario. She was captured in Iceland in October 1979 at about 3 years old. Kiska has had 5 calves but all of them died at a young age. Her first calf was a male born on August 24, 1992. He only survived 2 months. Her second calf was a male named Kanuck. Kanuck was born on August 28, 1994 and died sometime in 1998. Her third calf was a male named Nova who was born on November 6, 1996 and died on August 20, 2001. Her fourth calf was another male named Hudson. He was born on September 15, 1998 and died on October 20, 2004. He was Kiska's longest surviving calf. Her last calf was born on August 8, 2004. She was Kiska's first daughter and was named Athena. Athena died in Spring 2009
It is thought that her mate, Kandu 7, may have passed down genes that resulted in multiple of his calves being born with illnesses. He sired all of the calves born in the park and all but 2 died before or at the age of 6. Marineland though, has often been scrutinized for how they take care of their animals. Improper health care was also likely a factor.
In 2006, Marineland received a 4 year old male orca from SeaWorld named Ikaika. Ikaika lived with Kiska, Nootka 5 and Athena. Over the years, Nootka and Athena died and Ikaika was Kiska's only companion. As Ikaika grew older, they were often seperated because he would harass her.
In November 2011, Ikaika was moved to SeaWorld San Diego after a long custody battle between Marineland and SeaWorld. Kiska is the only orca living at Marineland.
Kshamenk is a young orca bull that was "captured" off the coast of Argentina. he was forced to strand by the Mundo Marino staff.
When he was “rescued”, he was sent to Mundo Marino, a park located outside Buenos Aires. He joined a young female called Bélen* and the two got along really well, but also had to be separated at times. Kshamenk showed aggression to her and sometimes harrassed her. Nevertheless, he mated with her and fathered a calf, but it didn't survive. When Bélen died in 2000, it was discovered that she was pregnant again.
Kshamenk spent his time with the dolphins, his favourite is Floppy, a young female; he even tries to mate with her.
Over the years, Kshamenk has grown and he is getting too big for his tanks. Since 2002, Six Flags tries to get Kshamenk, so that he can be a companion for Shouka. But several attempts were denied by the Argentinean government.
Mundo Marino has trained Kshamenk for AI and in 2011, one of SeaWorld's females, Kasatka was successfully A.I.ed with his semen. On February 14, 2013 she gave birth to a healthy calf,
Malvina is a young female orca who is estimated to be about 2 or 3 years old. She arrived to the TINRO center in summer or fall 2015 and so it is assumed she is one of three orcas captured in Russia in July 2015. Her age and capture date has not been confirmed though and is just speculation.
Little is known about Malvina, though it has been mentioned by TINRO that she is afraid of people she does not know. They also mentioned that she is from a mammal-eating pod of killer whales, otherwise known as Transients.
Narnia is a 9 year old female orca who lives at the Moskvarium. She was captured in Russia in August 2012.
At the time of her capture, two orcas were caught, though it's possible there may have been a third. They were captured from the Okhotsk Sea. Narnia was the only orca taken into captivity. She was held at the TINRO Center until December 2013, when she and a young male orca, named Nord, were transferred to a temporary holding sight.
In December 2014, Narnia and Nord were transferred to the new aquarium along with a new female named Malishka. Narnia has been looking after Malishka since and is the dominant female.
Nord is a 6 year old male orca who lives at the Moskvarium. In October 2013, three orcas were captured in Russia. One of these was a young male estimated to be about 4 years old. In December of 2013, Nord was moved to a temporary holding facility, along with a female named Narnia, until their new home could be built. On November 5, 2014, it was announced he had been named Nord.
In December 2014, Narnia and Nord were transferred to the new aquarium along with a new female named Malishka. The three whales now perform in shows at the Moskvarium.
Malishka, also known as Juliet, is a 5 year old female orca who lives at the Moskvarium. She was captured in Russia, possibly in July 2014 . On December 21, it was confirmed that she had joined orcas Narnia and Nord at the new aquarium. She may have lived in Sochi prior to her arrival She has become close with her tank mates, Narnia and Nord. Narnia has been caring for Malishka since her arrival. She is also in training for waterworks.
