A rescued pilot whale is getting acclimated in a behind-the-scenes pool at Dolphin Stadium
A pilot whale, found stranded on a Japanese beach years ago, arrived to San Diego where he'll live with other pilot whales.
Argo, a 10-year-old pilot whale, was getting acclimated in a behind-the-scenes pool at Dolphin Stadium at SeaWorld San Diego.
The park released video of the whale Monday.
Argo comes from Japan, where he was found stranded on a beach in 2004.
Japanese Coast Guard officials made several attempts to return him to the ocean, but the animal continued to beach.
Argo was rescued and rehabilitated at a Japanese Marine Park but that park has no other pilot whales.
SeaWorld San Diego was asked to provide long-term care for Argo so he can live with other whales of his own species.
