The images found here have all been gathered either from this facility's official resources or news articles.

I have no exact information on this individual's capture date -- however, articles from 2016 reference Zeus as being 13 years old, and Sonja "the same age". Additionally, Marineland has stated that Sonja arrived at their facility in 2001, while also saying two days later that she arrived in 2004. I have no way to know which is accurate, so I am making the assumption here that Sonja was captured by 2001 and sent to Marineland by 2004.
