Shamu the Whale's Birthday (1985)
- Did you know that killer whales live in all oceans of the world? Most are found near the Arctic and Antarctic where it's icy cold. Shamu was a killer whale (orca) which appeared in shows at SeaWorld San Diego in the mid/late 1960s. She was the fourth orca ever captured, and the second female. She was caught in October 1965 and died in August 1971, after about six years of performance. After her death, the name Shamu continued to be used in SeaWorld Shamu orca shows for different whales in different SeaWorld parks. Source

Read: Shamu: The 1st Killer Whale in Captivity (Famous Firsts: Animals Making History)
-- Animals have been an influential part of science, technology, and travel throughout time. Shamu: The 1st Killer Whale in Captivity provides readers information on orcas, background on Shamu, a chronology of Shamu's life, and how her captivity influenced history. Colorful graphic art, fast facts, and a glossary will bring the historic animal to a younger audience.

Intex Whale Ride-On -- Finally, a Shamu of your very own: an inflatable Orca, minus the teeth. At 6 feet long, he'd take up the whole bathtub, but is ideal for endless rides in the pool.

Plush Whale Sleeping Bag -- Big, friendly eyes, sharp teeth, and the classic whale fin help make this sleeping bag the scariest around. Once fully tucked in the blanket, the whale looks like it's devouring anyone inside!
