    the egg donor would be considered the biological mother. Part of the child's DNA will come from the biological mother. 

    However, from a social standpoint, the child's mother is the one who raises and cares for the child.

    "Real mother" is not a scientifically defined term. You have to explain what you mean by that if you want anything like an intelligent answer.

    Nope.  The one that raises the egg is.

    There was a expose' where a lion had a striped Leopard.  It was one of its cubs and protected it from other lions. It was an experiment to see what would happen.

    No, just the genetic one.

    She is the one that undergoes a horrible hormone-treatment, not the one who risks her life giving birth, and in most jurisdictions not the legal mother

    Real is a highly relative term.

    The egg donor is the biological mother. If the fertilized egg is grown on another female, that would be the surrogate mother. A woman who legally acquires the child of another is an adoptive mother. The mother who cares, raises and puts her life at risk for her child is the real one.

    It depends what you mean by real mother. Traditionally the biological mother and the caregiver who raises a child are the same person. Which one of those roles you consider to be "real" will determine who you think the real mother is.

    Yes, of course. That's where the genes comes from (plus the father).
