Originally photographed by Calcasieu fishing guide Capt. Erik Rue a few years ago the animal has caused quite a stir among marine mammal experts who have noted they have never observed a dolphin like this one.
“Pinky” was feared to have left or perished in Hurricane Ike but was spotted soon after and has been thrilling anglers who occasionally get a glimpse while seeking reds and specks just across the Texas border.
This unique creature sports deep red eyes and a body that is entirely pink. In this photo you can see the fin of another dolphin it was feeding with. There were four in a pod that were working a school of mullet.
