The main attraction at SeaWorld theme parks are its Orcas, also known as Killer Whales. Orcas are the largest species of the oceanic dolphin family, they are found in all the world's oceans, from the frigid Arctic and Antarctic regions to warm, tropical seas. Several of which are housed in 7-million-gallon habitats that are each known as Shamu Stadium.

Some Interesting Facts

Shamu was the name of the first Orca brought to SeaWorld San Diego in the 1960s. 'Shamu' is now used as a stage name for adult Orcas in performances at SeaWorld parks. The Orcas all have real names.

Currently, Sea World houses 22 Orcas in its three parks.
