The world’s only pink Bottlenose dolphin which was discovered in an inland lake in Louisiana, USA, has become such an attraction that conservationists have warned tourists to leave it alone.
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.

Wow this is very interesting….at first I thought that was a fake dolphin, I had to look twice and squint. Very very interesting.

I seriously hope that animal is left alone and not a target of “science”

Is it a form of albinism?

Cute! I love how the mom has stuck with it. I sure hope no one captures it.

I don’t know if they are bottlenose dolphins or not, but when I was in Singapore, they had pink dolphins at their aquarium and my Mom and I got our picture taken with it.

I think this is kind of like flamingos, who are naturally white but their diets turn them pink. This albino dolphin must have similar eating habits to flamingos!
