Makaio is a 7 year old male orca who lives at SeaWorld Orlando. He was born on October 9, 2010. His mother is Katina and his father is Tilikum, making him the 4th calf born to the pair and Katina's 7th calf. He is the youngest orca living in Orlando and the most recent to be born at the park. He was born just after Katina's first calf Kalina had passed away on October 4th.
Makaio joins the other orcas in shows. He is starting to learn more advanced behaviors as he grows, though he is one of the more difficult whales to teach new behaviors,
He is most often seen with his mom Katina, though he is becoming more independant. He enjoys being with the other young orcas and his older sisters Nalani and Malia could often be seen helping Katina care for him. He used to spend a lot of time playing with them as well, though he isn't grouped with Malia as often. He was also one of the few younger orcas who met Tilikum.
