A rare pink dolphin was spotted leaping out of the water Saturday.

Bridget A. Boudreaux said she saw the albino dolphin, known as "Pinky," playing in a Louisiana shipping channel. But what's even more amazing is that Boudreaux claims that there was a second pink dolphin, KPLC reported.

If a second albino dolphin was, in fact seen, that would be remarkable because only 14 pink bottlenose dolphins have been spotted since 1962, according to Science Alert.

Another recent sighting of pinky. Keep em coming!
