CALCASIEU PARISH, La. (Sept. 9, 2015) – Captain Erik Rue of Calcasieu Charter Service could never forget “Pinky,” the pink dolphin he first spotted in 2007 while out fishing.

Eight years ago, the baby dolphin would always stay close to her mother, reports WGNO. Now, almost a decade later, “Pinky” swims on her own or with a pod of other dolphins.

"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 told WGNO.

Rue said the dolphin’s whole body is “100 percent pink.” He first thought she was an albino dolphin, but wonders if the unique color is something else.

Rue said he’s witnessed “Pinky” mating and is eager to learn if she’s pregnant. Of course, he wonders what color her offspring would be if she has any.
