Winter: America's Next Top Dolphin

| Filed under: Film FlickersDolphins

Winter the Dolphin With Prosthetic Tale

Flipper best call his agent! There's a new dolphin celebrity, and she's about to take over the big screen.

They call her Winter, and her life story is the focus of Dolphin Tale - a movie opening next month that stars Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd and Harry Connick Jr.

Why does she deserve all the attention? Well, aside from being your average super adorbz dolphin, Winter is the fist and only dolphin with a prosthetic tale!

The poor thing lost her tale in a blue crab trap when she was only 3-moths-old. She was taken to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium where she surprised a lot of people just by surviving. that when VP of prosthetics at Hanger Prosthetics and Orthotics Kevin Carroll, heard about the brave little dolphin and decided to design her a new tale. (What a sweetheart!)

This was over than five years ago, and since then, Winter's fame has spread far and wide and has helped the aquarium's attendance. But now that she's getting her own movie… well, there's no doubt it's gonna skyrocket her stardom!

Let's just hope it doesn't go to her head.
