J.J., the gray whale calf, continues to thrive at Sea World as she starts her fifth month of care. Animal care specialists have begun the weaning process by occasionally offering J.J. squid. J.J is fed five gallons of formula six times daily. The 5,400-pound, 20-foot-5-inch orphaned gray whale calf was rescued off the coast of Marina Del Rey Jan. 11, 1997. She has grown 6.5 feet and gained 3,730 pounds during her four-month Sea World stay.
