Well you asked for it and here it is. This is Adáns’ orca story.
Adán was the first orca born at Loro Parque. He was born on October 13, 2010 born to Keto and Kohana. Kohana didn’t know how to raise a calf so Loro Parque had to step in. They didn’t give Kohana a chance to learn how to be a good mom or didn’t teach her how at all.
Adán was kept in the medical tank which was 40.7 feet long, 23.3 feet wide, and 13.8 feet deep but they made smaller because he was still a baby. He stayed in that tiny tank all alone for about a year until Morgan came in 2011. Adán was the first orca to be introduced to her. They two got along very well, however Morgan was one of the lower ranking orcas so she got bullied a lot and then took her frustration out on Adán. These fights would last about a minute before they calmed down.
On August 3, 2012, he had a sister, Victoria. But like Adán, Kohana didn’t know how to take care of her, so Loro Parque had to step in. In November, Adán was introduced to his little sister. Adán and Vicky got along very well together. Unfortunately, Victoria never lived to her first Birthday and died when she was only 10 months old.
Adán still lives at Loro Parque and since he is one of the lower ranking orcas, he gets bullied a lot. But, he became good friends with the other two lower ranking orcas, Morgan and Tekoa.
