Pink dolphin appears in US lake

Pink dolphin appears in US lake - Telegraph: "Charter boat captain Erik Rue, 42, photographed the animal, which is actually an albino, when he began studying it after the mammal first surfaced in Lake Calcasieu, an inland saltwater estuary, north of the Gulf of Mexico in southwestern USA.

Capt Rue originally saw the dolphin, which also has reddish eyes, swimming with a pod of four other dolphins, with one appearing to be its mother which never left its side.

He said: 'I just happened to see a little pod of dolphins, and I noticed one that was a little lighter.

'It was absolutely stunningly pink."
