Tonight Cathy and I watched "Dolphin Tale," which is the story of Winter, a bottlenose dolphin that was trapped in a crab cage and lost her tail. She was taken to an aquarium in Clearwater, Florida where she lives today. Shortly after taking her in, she was fitted with a prosthetic tail, which allows her to swim like a normal dolphin.
Here's a quick Discovery News segment about the actual dolphin.
I know that the movie was pretty "dramatized," but I thought it was really good. One of those movies that makes you feel like you are about to cry for almost the entire thing.
One thing that wasn't dramatized was the dolphin herself. Winter steals the show, and upon first site you can't help but be absolutely amazed by this animal.
