That's kewl, I don't think it looks like the picture was messed around with but I don't know much about that stuff. It looks like it's a real albino dolphin to me.

Thanks for sharing this, Steve. That little guy is awesome looking! I have heard of the pink dolphins that the article mentions. The optimist in me likes to think that this is real and not a "doctored" picture.

We went swimming with the dolphins at Discovery Cove a couple of weeks ago and it was an awesome experience. If you ever get the chance go for it! I'm not really comfortable in the water, but I gathered all of my bravery for the experience. We took our 8 year old g'daughter and she loved it too.

Thanks again - I've forwarded the link to my daughter and some other dolphin lovers.

WOW! He's so pretty!! It looks like he may be albino (even tho they are white with no pigment usually).

That's so cool, I doubt the pic is messed with since it's on the fox news website.

Wow. Nature never ceases to amaze me.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Corinthians 13:4)

Glad everyone seemed to like pink dolphin! I'm 99% sure that it's an undoctored photo. I knew that they (albino/pink specimens) existed... but I don't know if there is any record of them in this country prior to this. <-Steve->

Holy meep! I am so like 'wowed' right about now. I've heard of the albino dolphins, but I would never think it would come up to a pink one, It would blend right into my walls in my room, wow....so pretty! I wonder how a purple dolhpin would look like...


I have a feeling I'm not in Illinois anymore.

That is really neat and being an experianced photoshoper that knows alot about recolering...I don't think that it's messed with. Looks real to me and I doubt if it were fake that they would put it on fox news.

Ya if it was tinkered with, it look like this purple dolphin, but in pink!
