Orky II and Corky II. Two favorites of mine. Corky is still alive at about 45 years of age and lives at SeaWorld San Diego. Orky was probably the largest male killer whale ever kept in captivity and died in 1988, after fathering Orkid and Kayla. Orky was around 30 years old when he passed away. Orky and Corky met at Marineland of the Pacific in 1969, where they lived together ‘til it closed in 1987.
