We all love dolphins, but most of us didn’t know that they can be even cuter than we know them- when colored pink! And the good news is that a rare pink dolphin mom, called Pinky, has given birth to a pink calf of her own!
She became popular 12 years ago when she was spotted by Captain Erik Rue in the Calcasieu River in Louisiana. He saw her regularly swimming in the area and mating with dolphins, and even depicted her as ‘very sexually active’.
According to experts, Pinky is a rare river dolphin who got the pink color from a rare genetic mutation. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) listed the species” endangered to vulnerable”, and its population is decreasing, with only tens of thousands left of them.
The birth of the calf gives us hope that calves have inherited their mother’s genetic mutation which would help in the effort of increasing the population of rare species.
Captain Rue explained that the dolphin is completely pink, from its tail to the tip, and has red eyes. Its skin is smooth and glossy.
Pinky isn’t affected by the environment or sunlight but he said that it tends to remain below the surface more than other members of the pod. She’s an incredible mammal that brings joy to locals, and guests are thrilled at the opportunity to see this unique and wonderful creature.
Bridget Boudreaux spotted Pinky and her calf in the river a while ago. She saw them swimming and jumping around. Spotting the mom and her baby was a wonderful experience for her, and she even asked the captain to stop the boat so she can have more time to enjoy it.
