Lynn 9789

Credit: Nagoya

Lynn is a 4 year old female orca who was born on November 13, 2012. Her mother is Stella and her father is Bingo. Bingo and Ran assisted Stella through the birth. Lynn is the first orca to be born at Nagoya.

Unlike most killer whale births, Lynn was born head first, while most are born tail first. What makes this even more unique is that Stella's fourth calf, Ran, was also born head first.

On June 17, 2013, it was announced she had been named Lynn after 7 months of Nagoya choosing from names that had been suggested by the public. It was orginally thought that she had been named Rin.

Lynn grew up spending a lot of time with her older sister Ran. In December 2015, Ran was moved back to Kamogawa. Earth moved to Nagoya and now spends a lot of time with Lynn.
