Growing baby whale moved to bigger tank

   SAN DIEGO, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- A baby whale brought to San Diego's Sea
World near death last month is spending her first day (Saturday) in a
new, larger tank and gaining weight at a rate of about about 1.5 pounds
an hour. A Sea World spokeswoman says the new 1.7 million-gallon pool
has a viewing panel that allows the public to see the 2,600-pound, 5-
week-old gray whale for the first time.
