Adorable Pink Dolphin In Louisiana Is Like A Real-Life Pokemon
Meet what just might be the world’s cutest dolphin.
“Pinky,” as she’s being called, is a rare pink dolphin — and a Pokemon lookalike — spotted in Louisiana waters.
First seen in 2007 as a pup swimming alongside her mother in the Calcasieu River, she was recently spotted again by Capt. Erik Rue of Calcasieu Charter Service.
“We still see her swimming almost every day in the summertime. We’ve seen her a lot in the last few weeks. She looks happy and healthy,” Rue told WGNO, the New Orleans ABC station.
Pinky has already become a celebrity on social media:
Rue told WGNO he’s seen Pinky hundreds of times over the years, and that she is indeed completely pink.
“One hundred percent pink — you know, like, the color of most dolphins’ bellies, but her whole body is pink,” he told the station.
The pink dolphin bears a resemblance to Gorebyss, one of the creatures from Pokemon:
There is some dispute over Pinky’s unique coloring. Some believe she is an Amazon River dolphin, which is naturally pink, but Rue and many others don’t buy it.
