Killer Whale Killer Whale

Meet one-and-a-half-year-old Takara, one of the killer whales at Sea World, in San Diego, California. Takara, who is known as Baby Shamu when she performs for visitors, is one of the few killer whales ever born in captivity. Watch her as she and the other killer whales swim, leap, and dive while working with their trainers and putting on a show.

Killer whales are the top predators in the ocean, and they use their speed and strength to capture their food. These same qualities make them among the most exciting performers at aquatic parks.

This lively photo essay introduces youngsters to a popular marine animal. The informative text describes the killer whale's daily life and habits, both in captivity and in the wild. Forty exciting full-color photographs reveal the whale's sleek beauty and highlight its unusual characteristics. Killer Whale offers children a fascinating portrait of this powerful ocean dweller.
