For the first 10 years, Lolita had a killer whale companion, Hugo, who reportedly died by pounding his head against the side of the tank. Since 1980, Lolita has been alone, unable to interact with members of her own species or engage in any natural behaviors. Lolita canít even dive because the the tank to which she is confined is shallower than the length of her body.
