Rare ... pink dolphin in Louisiana

THIS is a flipping stunning picture of the worlds only PINK Bottlenose dolphin.

The dolphin, which is an albino, is the odd one out within its pod and after being spotted last year has been wowing visitors at a lake in Louisiana, US.

The mesmerising mammal was photographed making a splash by local charter boatman Captain Erik Rue, 42.

Cpt Rue has been studying the dolphin since it first surfaced in Lake Calcasieu, an inland saltwater estuary, north of the Gulf of Mexico.

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.
