Kanduke The Killer Whale 1990 by philliesorca Kanduke The Killer Whale 1990 by philliesorca
My parents went to seaworld in September of 1990 for their honeymoon, 4 years before I was born. And i was looking at the photo album my mom has, and found this picture of Kanduke, who is not even around anymore
do NOT use anywhere

No, Keiko played Free Willy, he was captured in Iceland, moved to MarineLand Canada, then to Reino Aventura, then Oregon Coast Aquarium, and finally Iceland/Norway. Kanduke lived at SeaLand, MarineLand Canada, and finally SeaWorld FL.

Ah right, forgive me i do apologize most profously, i get confused with the names, but also that Fin reminded me of Keiko. I think i got the names mixed up because i have heard of Kanduke before. He is a magnificent Orca and this picture is fantastic :D
