Winter the Dolphin

Winter the dolphin is an inspirational animal. She lost her tail after being caught in a crab trap and she survived despite all the adversity of such a catastrophic injury to a marine mammal. She had a will to survive and learned to swim again with the help of a prosthetic tail.

Winter lives at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. She has a book and now a movie coming in September, in which she stars as herself.

You can read her full story and see more pictures at the mail online.
