  1. See, I think “of comparative size” may be a bit of a stretch… I understand he’s in a tank and not free in the wide ocean, but to say that he’s trapped in a small space barely bigger than him in which he can’t even swim at all is a misnomer. At least I believe it is. If this whale is in fact trapped in a space that is as tight on him as a man in a bathtub, then please correct me.

    For a creature born to swim 100 miles a day, it is! And I’ve recently relocated to Washington State, where these wild whales are my state animal. They are known to swim from the US to Norway!

    “…building a tank the size of Rhode Island wouldn’t be large enough for a six-ton male such as Tilikum, an animal capable of swimming 100 miles in a day.” – Whale Expert quoted in the Orlando Sentinel
