Makaio is an 8 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 learning more advanced behaviors as he grows, though he is not as quick to pick up on new behaviors.
