Pink is often considered a girl’s color. Apparently, that applies to dolphins too.
A charter boat captain named Erik Rue first spotted the dolphin nicknamed Pinky while out fishing on his boat in Louisiana, according to this Facebook post from the American Wildlife Association.
Rue said, when he first encountered Pinky eight years ago, she’d always hang by her mother. Now she swims on her own and with other dolphins. He believes she’s one of the few dolphins with that kind of pigmentation.
“We still see her swimming almost every day in the summertime. We’ve seen her a lot in the last few weeks. She looks happy and healthy,” Rue said.
He said he believes he’s seen Pinky mating. If that’s true and she’s pregnant, what color will her calves be?
