Val 2

Credit:Marineland

Valentin was a 19 year old male orca who lived at Marineland Antibes. He was born on February 13, 1996, just before Valentine's Day. His mother is Freya and his father is Kim 2. Sadly, Valentin passed away on October 12, 2015.

Valentin was Freya's only surviving calf out of five. The two were very close and could often be seen performing together up until her death in June 2015. Valentin was a large male but his dorsal fin was still rather straight for a male orca his age. He was a reliable performer and knew many high energy behaviors.
