Image: Shamu: The 1st Killer Whale in Captivity (Famous Firsts: Animals Making History), by Joeming Dunn (Author), Brian Denham (Illustrator). Publisher: Magic Wagon (September 1, 2011)Shamu the Whale's Birthday (1985)
- Did you know 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.

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.

-- Orcas or Killer Whales belong to the Dolphin family which gives a false sense of security whether to approach them or not. Just like any carnivorous animal, an Orca can become violent and attack. Wild Republic ocean stuffed animals take the danger out of the equation. All these sea animal toys are waiting to be hugged and played with. The detail and quality of the martial they are made of is what creates the lifelike appearance. Perfect for any age from toddler to teen. Finding a unique and entertaining kids toy can be a struggle. Remove the stress and bring home a sea creature today. Wild Republic has been developing animal plush and educational toys for kids of all ages since 1979, with a unique specialization in realistic stuffed animals.

-- Finally, a Shamu of your very own: an inflatable Orca, minus the teeth. At six feet long, he'd take up the whole bathtub, but is ideal for endless rides in the pool. There are two big grab-handles cemented to the sides. Two air chambers for extra safety. Unless you have an Orca's deep-sea lungs yourself, we recommend a good pump for this one.
