captive orca profiles 22 keto
Keto is an 19 year old male orca who lives at Loro Parque. He was born at SeaWorld Orlando on June 17, 1995 to mother Kalina and father Kotar. Keto is one of the few orcas to have lived at all four SeaWorld's that have been opened. He is rather dominant for a male orca as males are usually more submissive. In 2006, Keto moved to Loro Parque along with three other orcas. Since then, he has sired two calves with Kohana; Adan in 2010 and Victoria in 2012. Keto is Kohana's half Uncle which makes their calves 6.25% inbred. Keto has also been pursuing the parks young female Morgan. In 2009, Keto was involved in the death of one of his trainers, Alexis, during a training session where his trainer drowned. Since this happened, waterworks was stopped, though trainers still entered the water with Adan and Victoria. Incidents A Loro Parque trainer has been killed by one of the whales during a training session. The trainer was 29-year-old Alexis Martínez, and the accident occurred at 10.30 am this morning during the first training session for the Christmas Special planned for the New Year. The other 7 trainers were also present in the training session. As far as can be determined right now, Alexis was hit by 14-year-old male killer whale Keto, and his death was caused by drowning because he was under the water unconscious for several minutes before he could be rescued. The autopsy report on Martínez was telling and states bluntly that his was a “violent death.” It describes multiple cuts and bruises, the collapse of both lungs, fractures of the ribs and sternum, a lacerated liver, severely damaged vital organs, and puncture marks “consistent with the teeth of an orca.” It concludes that the immediate cause of death was fluid in the lungs (i.e., drowning) but that the fundamental cause was “mechanical asphyxiation due to compression and crushing of the thoracic abdomen with injuries to the vital organs.” In other words, at some point Keto probably slammed into Martínez with such force that he caved in his chest — at Loro Parque.
