Rare Pink Dolphin Spotted in Lake Calcasieu, Louisiana

Photograph via sloshyjacob on reddit

Redit user sloshyjacob recently shared a series of amazing photos his friend took of ‘Pinkie’ a rare pink dolphin known to frequent the waters of Lake Calcasieu, Louisiana.

For those wondering how a dolphin can possibly find its way and survive in a fresh water lake, Calcasieu connects to the Gulf of Mexico and actually consists of brackish or briny water which has more salinity than fresh water but not as much as seawater.

“Pinkie” is an albino bottlenose dolphin that was first spotted on June 24, 2007 by charter boat captain Erik Rue.

More recent sightings from 2015 captured “Pinkie” mating, confirming that the dolphin was female.

Just Waking Up to Two Lions Licking Water Drops Off Your Tent

Campers at Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park recently woke up to quite a surprise— two lions outside of their tent, licking the water drops. The safari-goers remained incredibly calm and were able to capture the intense moment on film.

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is a large wildlife preserve and conservation area in southern Africa. The park straddles the border between South Africa and Botswana and comprises two adjoining national parks: Kalahari Gemsbok National Park in South Africa and Gemsbok National Park in Botswana.
