Skyla and Kohana became very close, and in 2006 they both were moved to Loro Parque with Keto and Tekoa. Skyla grew up doing whatever she wanted due to the lack of a maternal figure. She often shows her dominance towards the other orcas. She has also been involved in incidents with trainers and was stopped from performing waterworks.

Despite her nature towards the pod, she is a very smart and reliable performer. She knows many advanced behaviors and is still learning. She can often be seen with Kohana, Morgan and Adan, though she also spends time with Keto and Tekoa.
