A pink dolphin??

Erik Rue and his ship travel the Gulf of Mexico on a regular and have spotted this albino dolphin 50 times and was finally able to get some pics.

“The mammal is entirely pink from tip to tail and has reddish eyes indicating
it’s albinism. The skin appears smooth, glossy pink and without flaws. I have
spotted it about 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.
Surprisingly, it does not appear to be drastically affected by the environment
or sunlight as might be expected considering its condition, although it tends to
remain below the surface a little more than the others in the pod.”
