ONLY PINK BOTTLENOSE DOLPHIN
No! You are not suffering the delirium tremens that provides pink elephants after binging. THE only pink BOTTLENOSE dolphin ever spotted has surfaced again in a saltwater estuary in Lousiana. Think pink ... you're not seeing the world through rose-coloured glasses:This albino dolphin is pink. Unique ... the bottlenose - first spotted in Lake Calcasieu,an inland saltwater estuary in Louisiana, byboat captain Erik Rue, 42, in 2007 - has surfaced again. Rare sight ... "Pinky" is believed to be the only pink dolphin in the world,and has "reddish" eyes. It is usually spotted with its dark grey mother. One of a kind ... there are only 14 other known albino dolphins in the world, all of them white. Healthy glow ... "The dolphin appears to be healthy and normal other than its colouration, which is quite beautiful and stunningly pink," saidMr Rue, who estimates he has spotted Pinky more than 40 times. Note: they probably have the Pacific Humpback Dolphin there. They are pink. Like the Amazon Fresh Water Dolphins are. Likely has to do with lack of sunlight. This, is perhaps the first known pink bottlenose dolphin.
