Meet the Animals
The aquarium is home to many marine animals including dolphins, sea turtles, river otters, stingrays and nurse sharks. Not to mention, Winter, the dolphin who lost her tail and learned to swim with a prosthetic one, lives in the waters of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. The movie Dolphin Tale, starring Morgan Freeman, Harry Connick Jr., and Ashley Judd, recounts her life story.
