Pink Dolphin – Mysterious Mythical Creature!

Myth: It is often said that the boto is a pink dolphin in the Amazo River, very quiet and solitary. They are “mythical” animal that is ʙʟɪɴᴅ.

Fact: Boto dolphins are accurate and are the subject of many exciting myths. There are many pink and grey ones. They are reticent. In some places, boto dolphins are very friendly to humans.

Legend has it that boto dolphins are nocturnal human transformations to “ʜɪᴅᴇ ᴀᴅᴜʟᴛᴇʀʏ and sᴇxᴜᴀʟ ᴀᴄᴛs”, according to Gabriel Melo Alves dos Santos, a doctoral student at Para University in Brazil.

The scientific view of this dolphin species is more ᴍᴜɴᴅᴀɴᴇ. However, the truth is that the boto, one of the few freshwater dolphins ʟᴇꜰᴛ on Earth, remains a mystery.

Scientists need to find out how many botos are out in the wild and how many have ᴅɪᴇᴅ. They also need to find out for sure why they are pink.

Not All Boto Dolphins Are Pink.

“Their colours are very different,” says Vanessa Mintzer, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Florida, Gainesville. As they grow, they gradually turn pink. Mature males are the pinkest.”

Mammal colourist Tim Caro of the University of California at Davis has a different explanation. “Pink is a way to hide under the red mud particles, which appear in rivers after heavy rain,” he said.

One recent theory is that the boto dolphins ꜰɪɢʜᴛ a lot, and that’s their pink ᴄᴀʟʟᴜs. There is certainly a lot of “ᴄᴏɴᴛʀᴀᴅɪᴄᴛɪᴏɴ” among dolphins, especially between males, which are known to weigh 55% more than females.

Contrary to the boto dolphin’s secretive, hidden life habits, some appear openly to humans.

At a market in Mocajuba, Para State, Brazil, boto dolphins play with children after they help their families sell goods.

The water here is evident, and photographer Alves dos Santos has seen their behaviour in great detail.

Many Mesmerized And In Awe Of The Beauty Of These Creatures.

One of the exciting things is that they are very friendly, not ᴀɢɢʀᴇssɪᴠᴇ. “If they want, they can ʙɪᴛᴇ those babies because they’re so big and have strong ᴊᴀᴡs,” he said.

“However, pink dolphins do not do that, they play with children almost every morning”. Locals say this has been happening for the past 30 years.

The recent sightings of pink dolphins have left many mesmerized and in awe of the beauty of these creatures.

While they may be a rare sight, efforts are being made to protect them and their habitats, so that they may continue to enchant and inspire us for years to come.
