Video shows pink dolphin swimming in Louisiana

CAMERON PARISH, Louis. – A rare dolphin surfaced near Louisiana's Gulf Coast.

"Pinky," a rare pink dolphin, leaped from the waters of a Louisiana shipping channel over the weekend.

The dolphin has been spotted over the years, but this appears to be the clearest image of the creature out of the water.

The shipping channel connects Lake Charles to the Gulf of Mexico.

Animal experts differ in opinion over whether "Pinky" is an albino dolphin, or if the rare color comes from a genetic variation.
