5 things about PINK DOLPHINS

- Pink dolphins have no natural predators in the Amazon River other than humans, therefore they are usually found alone or in couples hunting, as they do not need to form pods for protection as the ocean dolphins do.

-Pink dolphins eat crabs, catfish, small river fish and even small turtles.

-Pink dolphins can be found in pink, light gray or brown colors but there is not conclusive evidence of the reason why pink dolphins are pink.

-Pink dolphins appear to be the friendliest of all the river dolphins when approaching to humans and some stories of people being pushed to the shores by them are common among some tribes in the Amazon

-Females and males mate to start a gestation period which is believed to last from nine to twelve months.
