Meet Stumpy, a 17 year old female Norwegian orca first spotted in 1996. In 2002 her mother was reported as missing and Stumpy was seen with another pod. Since then she has been spotted with four other groups.
She has an injured dorsal fin and deformed spine that would mean she could not survive by herself due to her inability to successfully hunt, however she survives.
In the third gif another female can be seen catching a mackerel and biting it in two, and in the forth gif half of the fish is released allowing Stumpy to pick it up. This suggests the other members of the pod are feeding her which has allowed her to survive despite her disabilities.

Cliffhanger by: Jean-Francois Largot - Masai Mara game reserve, Kenya
Clinging on for dear life to the side of a vertical cliff, the tiny lion cub cries out pitifully for help. His mother arrives at the edge of the precipice with three other lionesses and a male. The females start to clamber down together but turn back daunted by the sheer drop. Eventually one single factor determines which of them will risk her life to save the youngster – motherly love. Slowly, agonisingly, the big cat edges her way down towards her terrified son, using her powerful claws to grip the crumbling cliff side. One slip from her and both animals could end up dead at the bottom of the ravine. Just as the exhausted cub seems about to fall, his mother circles beneath him and he is snatched up in her jaws. She then begins the equally perilous journey back to the top. Minutes later, they arrive and she gives the frightened creature a consoling lick on the head. by: Paul Thompson
