Rare Pink Dolphin Is Captured On Camera Swimming In Louisiana Lake
September 15, 2016
A pink bottlenose dolphin was recently spotted in Louisiana's Lake Calcasieu. Although it's a lake, Calcasieu connects to the Gulf of Mexico and actually consists of brackish water which has more salinity than fresh water, so it's comfortable for a dolphin.
The albino dolphin is believed to be "Pinkie", who was first spotted in 2007 by charter boat captain Erik Rue.
Since she was first spotted, Pinkie has become something of a local celebrity, with people going out on boat tours of the lake just to catch a glimpse of her.
According to Rue, she’s friendly and curious, and sometimes gets within as little as five feet of his boat to check out the people checking her out.
