A Pink Dolphin nicknamed "Pinky" was caught on video swimming in a channel in Cameron Parish. The people recording said before they could start filming there was two pink dolphins.

The video which was first thought to be a fake was verified by the ship captain who said he's seen the dolphins since they were very young. Apparently this is actually more common than I thought in around 21 species of whales, dolphins and porpoises. It's not sure if they're albino or what causes the pink color without DNA testing but this is the second sighting in the past week. This tells me Pinky is here to stay and has brought his friends... Probably just getting a really early start for Mardi Gras!
