Louisiana: A rare pink dolphin has been spotted by a fishing boat captain in the Calcasieu River in southwestern Louisiana.

Captain Erik Rue of Calcasieu Charter Service spotted the dolphin in 2007, which he nicknamed 'Pinky'.

Rue told WGNO that the dolphin may be pregnant as he saw her mating.According to Rue, Pinky, now an adult, is one of the world's only dolphins with this color pigmentation.

“We still see her swimming almost every day in the summertime. We've seen her a lot in the last few weeks. She looks happy and healthy," Rue added.

Pinky, whose body is 100 percent pink like, the color of most dolphins bellies, is believed to be an albino.
