    I`ve been to New Orleans, worst city ever, and that was before the hurricane.

    The poor dolphin propbably had its skin infected from the filth running off with the rainwater.

    ah...

    "A close relation of dolphins, the Amazon River Botos, called pink dolphins, live in South America in the Amazon."

    The title should read "The world`s only pink Bottlenose dolphin"

    The Amazon River Botos are pink because that`s just the coloring of their species. This dolphin is a MUCH brighter color, and is so because of a genetic mutation. So yes, it is the only one.

    That article is not well-written. My journalism teacher would throw a fit.

    Pink dolphin is... pink. I think they photoshopped it a little bit to make it look more pink than it actually is, because that is really, REALLY pink.

    Anyway, the first sentence of the link description lies.

    Hong Kong Pink Dolphin Cruise

    Wow. Did they even TRY to do any research? Hong Kong has a whole species of pink bottlenose dolphin. Did they even google search PINK DOLPHIN before writing this???
    And yes it is not a hoax, I grew up in Hong Kong and have seen them.

    @alk3v-those dolphins aren`t truly pink. it has to do with blood vessels from what I read. As for this one it has everything to do with pigmentation being an albino

    I stand corrected SarahJ. Humpback it is.

    Someguy - Isn`t the pink color of any albino species from the blood vessels, like the red eyes in albino mice.

    Just makes me wonder if his momma got freaky with one of the Amazon `Botos`. Hot latin lovin` on the side in Louisiana?

    @alk3v-no it is a lack of pigmentation in the skin. there is no melanin being produced so they appear white to pink. as far as I know albinism has nothing to do with blood vessels and everything with skin
