Guess who’s back, back again. Pinky’s back, tell a friend.
A beautiful bright pink dolphin, who was first observed in Louisiana in 2007, was again seen swimming through a ship channel in her native state.
Bridget Boudreaux says she spotted the stunning creature, aptly named “Pinky,” while taking a boat ride with her husband in the Calcasieu Ship Channel on Saturday afternoon.
“I about fell out the boat,” Boudreaux told KHOU. “I was like wow that’s not a regular dolphin, that’s a pink dolphin.”
Although Boudreaux told WFLA that she actually saw two pink dolphins swimming together, she says one unfortunately disappeared before she could snap a photo.
“My husband was driving the boat and one jumped 20 feet from our boat,” Boudreaux said. “We were just astonished. I couldn’t get my camera out fast enough.”
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.
However, considering Pinky has been thriving for at least eight years since she was first spotted, we choose to believe luck will stay on her side.
