Nearly Extinct Pink Dolphin Gives Birth To Pink Calf

Rare pink dolphin mom gave birth to a cute baby dolphin. People call her Pinky, and the animal has been spotted in the Calcasiey river in Louisiana. The pink calf was there, too.

The pink mammal became popular 12 years ago when a clip was shared to Pinky's Facebook page, showing the two pink dolphins swimming in front of a massive boat in the Calcasieu Ship Channel.

Captain Erik Rue was the first to spot her.

Pinky is a Rare River Dolphin who got the pink color from a rare genetic mutation.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) listed river dolphins as endangered. Their population is steadily decreasing.

The birth of the calf gives us hope that calves have inherited their mother's genetic mutation which would help in the effort of increasing the population of rare species.

Pinky isn't affected by the environment or sunlight but sure likes to remain below the surface more than other animals.

Captain Rue said, via The Sun:

The mammal is entirely pink from tip to tail and has reddish eyes. The skin appears smooth, glossy pink and without flaws. Surprisingly, it does not appear to be drastically affected by the environment or sunlight as might be expected considering its condition, although it tends to remain below the surface a little more than the others in the pod. I feel very fortunate to have seen this incredible mammal and lucky to be able to work and live in the area where such a fantastic creature frequents. Our guests are always thrilled at the opportunity to spot such a unique mammal and we look forward to it being around for some time to come.

She's an incredible mammal that brings joy to locals, and guests love seeing such a wonderful mammal.

Bridget Boudreaux spotted Pinky and her calf in the river a while ago. She saw them swimming and jumping around.

Spotting the mom and her baby was a wonderful experience for her, and she even asked the captain to stop the boat so she can see it better.

Bridget told KATC:

It was amazing to see. I was astonished. My reaction, well I was in awe about it. It first came up straight out the water and I was like, 'Whoa! That was a pink dolphin! Stop the boat!!'

This Cloud Lamp Creates A Thunderstorm Inside Your Room, And It’s The Coolest Thing Ever

Do you like when it rains? Some people say rain and thunderstorms help them sleep better. Moreover, the sound of raindrops makes getting out of bed really hard.

Driven by this fact, Richard Clarkson Studio designed a real cloud lamp that makes thunderstorms. In your bedroom. Too good to be true? Well, this is real, and you can have it in your home.

Clarkson explains that their interactive lamp and speaker system mimics thunderclouds in several aspects.

The "cloud" detects your presence via motion sensors and releases unique lighting and thunders.

The lamp is packed with full-motion sensors, microphones, and speaker system.

Users can actually control the sounds and sensitivity to movements. The item is made from hypoallergenic fiberfill, and releases a nightlight and music reactive mode.

Users have full control over their "cloud." All you need is a wireless remote! The cloud includes a Phillips LED light to make thunders.

According to the studio, users can use the high-quality speaker to stream music through every Bluetooth compatible device. You can also adjust the color and the brightness of you lighting.

So, you can get your own thunderstorm machine for $3,300. If this is too much, get yourself a few non-interactive clouds for $960. There's also a "tiny" version.
