This specie is a Bolivian River Dolphin, Inia boliviensis, is different from the more common Amazon River Dolphin. It is smaller and lighter colored and has more teeth.
Dolphins are friendly, sensitive, mammals with a brain capacity 40% larger than that of humans. Scientists do not know why they are pink. They have some small blood vessels near the surface of their skin. This could be a reason. What do you think?
