Yes, that is actually a pink dolphin.  No, you are not hallucinating.  No, the image has not been altered (at least not by me, *wink*).

Please note:  this is not one of the Amazon River Botos, it is actually an albino dolphin…and you thought albino meant it had to be white!  Nope.  Apparently, they come in fashion colors.  Next year they’ll be mint green.  Mint green will be the new albino pink. ;)  Expect to see “Gulf of Mexico Barbie and ‘Rosa’, her pet dolphin” any day now.

So, this dolphin appeared in Calcasieu Lake, Lousiana way back in 2007, where it seems to reside since it’s still there according to Captain Eric Rue who first spotted the animal and also took the photo above.  He told the Telegraph: “It was absolutely, stunningly pink.  I had never seen anything like it. It’s the same color throughout the whole body and it looks like it just came out of a paint booth.”

More from the article:

Regina Asmutis-Silvia, senior biologist with the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, said: “I have never seen a dolphin colored in this way in all my career.”

Perez Hilton is, of course, ecstatic over the news.  You would think Pink is the New Blog would have something like this as a headline, however…it only merited a one line mention 9 bullet points down under Les News, 03/02/09.   At least they beat Perez to it…guess we know who’s reading who and I guess that makes me a total loser ’cause I read both!  LOL!

See kids…this is exACTly why you do NOT drop your bubblegum into the water!
