Boaters spot rare dolphin sighting. These 6 pictures are truly magical

Humans come in all shapes and sizes. Dolphins, however, usually look fairly similar, especially their coloring - except for this beautiful, unique, and very rare dolphin. That's what a few boaters discovered when they saw this shiny pink dolphin off the coast of Louisiana!
Now that people know she's out there, it's a treat to get to see her. Captain Rue, the first to discover her, charters his boat out so people can try and catch a glimpse. He says that as soon as she's sighted, everyone whips out their phone and tries to take a picture. It's not a surprise! She's truly beautiful, and surprisingly, they have no idea why she's that unique hue. Unsurprisingly, however, she has the perfect name: Pinkie.
