The Shamu Show

By Kathleen W. Redman
1     Good morning, boys and girls. This is Russ Reed with Nature News. This morning we have Shamu, the killer whale, with us. He has agreed to answer some questions. Shamu, these boys and girls are in Mr. Small's class. Let's see who has a question for you.
 
2     Shamu: Okay.
 
3     Russ: It looks like Samantha has a question for you. Go ahead.
 
4     Samantha: How did you get your name?
 
5     Shamu: The people at Sea World gave me my name. It means "friend of Namu" or "She-Namu." It is the stage name for all killer whales that work at Sea World parks.
 
6     Russ: Did I hear you say "killer whale"?
 
7     Shamu: Yes, you did, but you are safe. We don't kill humans.
 
8     Tony: What do you eat?
 
9     Shamu: Seals, walruses, sea lions, fish, and things like that. Sometimes we eat whales. My favorite thing to eat is squid. Squid is so juicy!
