Wow, this dolphin is so brightly coloured it's amazing!

This is the first time you can find one in North America apparently:

Pinky the Dolphin is a rare albino dolphin who inhabits the waters of Lake Calcasieu, an inland saltwater estuary, north of the Gulf of Mexico in Louisiana. He was discovered by a charter boat captain who found the dolphin swimming in a pod of four.

That would be a sight for sure!
Did see an Albino Alligator down there. Is the pink thing something similar?

Wow that is really unbelievable ..... I never would have thought the pink could be so bright. It reminds me of those pink flamingos people put in their yards!

I've seen an albino muskox which was definitely not even close to being pink!
