The pink dolphin of Calcasieu Lake

A unique bottlenose dolphin calf—an albino who experts say may be one-of-a-kind—has taken up residence off Louisiana shores in the Gulf of Mexico, where charter boats and locals alike have been prowling the waters in hopes of a glimpse. He's not just pink—he’s shockingly pink, especially when photographed swimming alongside his gunmetal-gray mother and her pod. The pink dolphin of Calcasieu Lake was first spotted June 17 by Erik Rue, a charter boat captain who operates near Lake Charles, Louisiana. (via)
