Woman Spots Pinky the Dolphin, Who May Have a Pink Newborn

A woman captured stunning video of a pink dolphin swimming in a Louisiana channel over the weekend.

"Pinky" the Dolphin, the most popular albino ocean-dweller, has been spotted; and this time, she had some young and equally pink company.

"I about fell out the boat", Boudreaux told KHOU.

According to Greg Barsh, a scientist who studies the genetics of color variation at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, the celebrity dolphin's eye-popping pink hue is likely due to albinism, the telltale signs of which include its reddish eyes and visible blood vessels, which show through its non-pigmented skin. Now, nearly 10 years later, Rue sees pinky swimming nearly every day.

Oil prices slip over Libyan production, OPEC cuts
Whereas, the U.S. drillers have cut one oil rig in the present week, cutting the total count to 765 as on Friday, August 4. Oil production remains high in many parts of the world and fuel prices are around half the level seen in 2011-2014.

Boudreaux said she saw two pink dolphins, along with some non-albino dolphins, playing together in the Calcasieu Ship Channel near Hackberry on Saturday, August 5 at around 4 p.m. She sent the outlet a picture of the dolphin (see below), and said that she'd spotted a second pink dolphin that disappeared before she'd been able to ready her camera.

"We watched them play around for awhile and then they went to the ship to play in front of it", Boudreaux said, according to NBC.

A rare dolphin surfaced near Louisiana's Gulf Coast.

There is another species of dolphin that is commonly known as a pink dolphin or a pink river dolphin: the Amazon river dolphin. "Although the dolphin is often referred to as a "pink" dolphin because of its pink coloration, it is considered an albino".
