S e c r e t s:
“Balancing Act” was inspired by a recent trip that Peter took to Florida’s Sea World. The highlight of his visit was seeing the great “Shamu” perform his many tricks. All right, so he didn’t actually juggle, but we bet Sea World is working on it! Peter reports that he is always torn on occasions such as these. He loves observing creatures that he will probably never see in the wild. But he felt uncomfortable watching these magnificent whales perform tricks for an audience. Within this box figurine are the carvings “I’m Mashu” and “50+”. Peter always thought that there was just one very famous orca named Shamu, but he learned that this is a stage name and that Sea World has had over 50 of them over the years. Inscriptions on the lid include its Latin name “Orcinus Orca” and “Mr. Big Fin”, since it is the male Orca with the longer dorsal fins.
