I think this is just a trick of the lighting. If you open it in a photo program and correct the lighting balance you'll see it's actually white. I'm not saying it's impossible it's pink, just unlikely. I'm not sure what would be strange about a pink tinted dolphin/porpoise anyway. Good luck and blessings, Prana

There are such things as pink dolphins, you know.

This is an Amazon river dolphin (Inia geoffrensis), or Boto. They can actually get much pinker than this one.

...pink dolphins are not mystery animals, sorreh ^^;; actually, i just watched a show awhile ago in which they encountered quite a few pink dolphins, out in the Amazon. (granted, it was a show we watched for Science class, and we all know everything they say is wrong. :P)

They would make nice pets for Hollywoods 'elite'- out with chihuahuas, in with pink dolphins.

Amazon pink river dolphins are one of those 'mythical' animals that most visitors to the Amazon want to see. Actually, they are fairly easy to see, and reasonably common! It is, however, very difficult to get a decent picture of them, as you never know where they may come up for air -- i got that off of a website

I want one! I love all whales and dolphins to death. I would give my legs to have one of those.
