Mar 6, 2009: Pink Shark

OK I lied, it's a Pink Dolphin.
The picture makes it look like plastic, or bubble gum, but apparently it's real.

Charter boat captain Erik Rue, 42, photographed the animal, which is actually an albino, when he began studying it after the mammal first surfaced in Lake Calcasieu, an inland saltwater estuary, north of the Gulf of Mexico in southwestern USA.

Capt Rue originally saw the dolphin, which also has reddish eyes, swimming with a pod of four other dolphins, with one appearing to be its mother which never left its side.
He said: "I just happened to see a little pod of dolphins, and I noticed one that was a little lighter.

"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.

"The dolphin appears to be healthy and normal other than its coloration, which is quite beautiful and stunningly pink.
"The mammal is entirely pink from tip to tail and has reddish eyes indicating its albinism. The skin appears smooth, glossy pink and without flaws.

"I have personally spotted the pink dolphin 40 to 50 times in the time since the original sighting as it has apparently taken up residence with its family in the Calcasieu ship channel.
Any chemical plants in that vicinity?
Captain Rue? Isn't that french for red?

That's just sunburn (which is "pre-cooked" to some!)

It's easy to evade sharks they're all incapacitated laughing.

I just read this thread and had a really powerful sense of deja vue. Everything, right down to the Cartman joke seemed familiar.

Sundae  Friday Mar 6 06:25 AM

It was in a UK paper. You might have seen it on the shelf of a newsagent and thought the Cartman ref?

But if you're seeing into the future PLEASE can I have the winning lottery numbers for tonight? 85 million

Princess of the Ryche saw this article, and asked if she could get a tattoo of a pink shark. Not dolphin. She's five.

Trilby  Friday Mar 6 01:20 PM

That is amazingly cool!

Thanks for the pink dolphin, God!

( the Mayans have anything about a pink dolphin in their propehcy?)

Nice pic. I want to have a band named pink dolphin of the quad pod.

lumberjim  Friday Mar 6 04:37 PM

I'm glad you noticed that. I think so, too. Very earnest looking, very extra-curricular, very all-round kind of dolphin. Possibly Phi Beta Kappa material.

Pink huh? Not that there's anything wrong with that...

That dolphin is trying to raise breast cancer awareness...It's a Komen dolphin.
