SAN DIEGO -- The newest member of the Sea World killer whale family is female.
The newborn calf took a swim with her mom at Shamu Stadium on Wednesday. The calf's gender was not known until a geneticist in Oregon recently confirmed it.
The calf, which is still nameless, was 23 days old on Wednesday. She now weighs about 300 pounds and is 6 to 7 feet long.
SeaWorld veterinarians say both the baby and its mother are doing well.
