It's sleek, fast, cute — and pink.

 

A charter-boat captain from Lake Charles, La., photographed a rare pink dolphin a couple of weeks ago in Calcasieu Lake, an estuary just north of the Gulf of Mexico in southwestern Louisiana.

 

According to Calcasieu Charter Service's Web site, Capt. Erik Rue was on the lake June 24 with fishing customers when five dolphins came into view — four normal-looking gray ones, and a bright pink one that appeared to be an adolescent.

 

"It appears to be an uncanny freak of nature, an albino dolphin, with reddish eyes and glossy pink skin," the Web site reads. "It is small in comparison to the others it is traveling with and appears to be a youngster traveling with mama."

 

There is a species of pink dolphin that lives in the Amazon River in South America, but this one appears to be a more common bottlenose dolphin.

If you couldn't tell that from an amazonian pink dolphin... well... nevermind.

 

Neanderthalman - the only way to find out is to take a bite!

:huh: Well when the dolphin is pink it means it a girl, right?

 

Well I hope they just haven't caught the whole Metrosexual trend.

I hope they let it be in the wild. Chances are it will never mate though..
