This is really COOL - A Real PINK Dolphin - in the U.S. I have never seen anything like this. The man says it has RED EYES! You can't see the eyes in the picture.



link to article: www.telegraph.co.uk...


Charter boat captain Erik Rue, 42, photographed the animal, which is actually an albino, when he began studying it after the mammal first surfaced in Lake Calcasieu, an inland saltwater estuary, north of the Gulf of Mexico in southwestern USA.

Capt Rue originally saw the dolphin, which also has reddish eyes, swimming with a pod of four other dolphins, with one appearing to be its mother which never left its side.


I can not imagine what has caused it to be pink! I have heard of albino dolphins before, but not pink.

The world is full of amazing things and this is one of them.

Albino but it eats crustaceons(ie shrimp) which make it pink. Same thing as Flamingos

actually, flamingos are pink from salt. There is a place down in Chile that they eat at, with salt, that makes them pink....

I agree, to me - it is a sign..... I have never heard of a pink dolphin before... it really is amazing! I love how he said "the mother" never left the side of the pink dolphin. I can just look at that picture all day.

If I saw it in real life myself..... wow...........

here is another, simply beatifull



Pink Amazon River Dolphin The Amazon river dolphin is the world's largest freshwater dolphin, and it's also considered the most intelligent -- its brain capacity is 40 percent greater than that of humans. (See? Pink = smart.) They're normally found in the Amazon and Orinoco river regions of South America, but the adorable little guy below was actually spotted in Louisiana.

That is a different breed of dolphin from this one, but very interesting to learn about. I never knew about them before.


Here is a link to more, unenhanced pics of the one spotted in Louisiana: calcasieucharters.com...

Sorry, I don't seem to have any luck doing the link thing here so if a mod would like to fix it for me, that would be nice. Thank you.

That is so awesome.
I have to wonder about the genetic anomaly which caused this.
Fascinating to say the least.
Quite a respite from world doom, wouldn't you say?

This is actually on the front page of news.com.au right now - never heard about it until today. It looks just like a kid's bath toy!

And evidently there's one in Singapore too:

I don't have links, and I'm fairly new here so please humour me.

There was a story on BBC news recently of a pink elephant, a baby one, with pics.

The pink dolphin is an albino. There are pink/white dolphins also in South East Asia, in the Mekong River, just south of the Laos/Cambodia border, I think they're called Irawadi River Dolphins... ?
