Okay - not really trivia because I don't know the answer... But I'm sure someone does!!!

How many whales have actually been named "Shamu" and not just used it as a stage name?

Two, I think.

Sea World's Shamu and then an alternate name for Dzul-ha (does anybody know the origins of that name? Even just what language? It's odd).

Y'know I've always wondered where the name Dzul-Ha came from. It's...Kind of a yucky name. He was sent to Mexico, so it might be from some native American language. Perhaps of Mayan or Aztec origin?
