Killer Whale Born at SeaWorld Orlando

Saturday night, October 16, 2010, we welcomed the 27th killer whale calf into our family. It was the 16th born at SeaWorld Orlando.

The 7-foot-long, 350-pound baby is the seventh calf for mom Katina, who instinctively assisted the baby whale to the surface for its first breaths moments after birth.

“It’s a terrific day for all of us,” said Kelly Flaherty-Clark, curator of animal training. “Katina is an experienced mom and she appears to be bonding quickly with her baby.”
