Pinky the dolphin looks exactly like her name implies.
The soft-hued porpoise, first spotted off the coast of Louisiana 10 years ago and seen numerous times since, is thought to be albino, or suffering from a rare genetic mutation.
The resident of Calcasieu Lake was at it again last weekend. Bridget Boudreaux, cruising on a nearby boat, snapped some great pics of the bottlenose dolphin, who was playing with a pack of buddies in the popular fishing lake.
“I about fell out the boat,” Boudreaux told KHOU. “I was like, wow, that’s not a regular dolphin, that’s a pink dolphin.”
While pink dolphins are extremely rare, Pinky was playing with another pink pal, who many think may be the animal’s offspring.
While Boudreaux may be a new fan of Pinky, there are legions: The dolphin has her own Facebook page.
