Who is Shamu?

@ Shamu's
Ta-Dah--This is Shamu

Three guesses .  Name the iconic symbol of killer whales; the spokesman of the Orca’s; the star of  Sea World ?

Of course, it’s Shamu, the slaphappy black and white mammal with the stupendous tail.  He shamelessly sprays and splashes his way into your soul, showering smooches on his trainer, then snorts a soggy smile. He spins, spirals and submerges, holding the crowd spellbound, only to surface with a startling slick stunt. He soars, he slides, and he shimmers and shines.

Don’t forget; he’s also a sleek, slippery scavenger, stealth of the ocean and a superb swimmer.  Yet, a sappy old salt who can summon spontaneous shouts from the crowd and smack a sopping somersault.

Sensational Shamu, put him in the spotlight and he steals the show.
