Jumbo was a 9 year old male orca who was captured in Washington, USA on August 8, 1970. He passed away at Kamogawa Sea World July 1974.

Jumbo was one of seven whales to be taken into captivity after over 80 orcas were caught in Washington. Soon after his capture, he was purchased by Kamogawa Sea World in Japan along with a whale named Chappy. The two were very popular among visitors. 

Sadly, Chappy passed away in April 1974. Jumbo soon passed away in July 1974 from liver dysfunction.
