Hugo at the underwater viewing windows in 1971.

Hugo was a wild captured orca and he did not adjust well to life in a pool. He devolped a habit of banging his head against the pool walls and windows. One day he banged his head so hard that the glass broke and his rostrum was cut off. He later had his rostrum sewn back on.

Hugo died in March 1980 from a brain aneurysm. His body was dumped at the Miami Dade Landfil.
