Named after Tumbo Island near Saturna Island in the Strait of Georgia, Tumbo (T2C2) is a male killer whale who was born in 2005. Tumbo has a distinct kink in his back and researchers believe this is possibly caused by scoliosis. Tumbo is the second calf of Tasu (T2C) and has an older brother, Rocky (T2C1); a younger sister, Lucy (T2C3); and a new sibling, Kano (T2C4).
