When William was only 5, he was able to convince his parents to buy him a orca. William named the orca Zap. Zap was able to fit in the pool, but him being in the pool made it unusable to the family since he hoarded all the water. As he got older, he became too big to fit in the pool and their family sold Zap to SeaWorld. Zap would be shipped to one in San Antonio, TX and only lived there for 3 years before he died from cancer.
