I'd be embarrassed too, if someone stole my wetsuit.

555...actually there are a few species of pink dolphins. These are Chinese White Dolphins and for this species...their white skin allows blood vessels to show through, making them appear pink. :thumbsup:

If these were Amazon River Dolphins, you be kinda sorta correct! 

 

The Amazon River dolphin is famous for its pink color, but many don't know that it comes in a large number of shades. The dolphins start off gray when they're young and slowly turn pink as they get older. ... And when the dolphins get excited, they can flush bright pink, similar to humans blushing. (Feb 13, 2017)

Not really "news" I guess.

Some of these dolphins seem to frequent the bay next to where 'Racha Ferries' operate out of at Don Sak.

Ive seen them the last 3 times while  Ive been waiting to drive on to the ferry going to Samui.

Beautiful animals .
