    2. Ah, man.

      Snopes article, and it is real. But its some kind of weird albino where the blood vessels near the skin show the pink color. But this line made me sad:

      “Biologists speculate that, in addition to the rarity of their birth, the scarcity of albino bottlenose dolphins might be due to their having poor eyesight, increased sensitivity to sunlight, and a coloration that provides poor camouflaging, factors which could significantly decrease their chances of reaching maturity.”

    3. The ancient Atlanteans believed that when a pink dolphin appeared a great catastrophe was about to occur. Then a whole pod of pink dolphins showed up one day and the island sunk. Fucking pink dolphins!

    4. The rivers in Amazonia are populated by pink dolphins called Botos. They’re not really that pink, but we call them pink botos so whatever. Pretty cool IMO.
