From the Anatomy of the pink dolphin
There are not yet the necessary studies that conclude the reason why dolphins are pink, even so, it has its variants because there are pink, light gray or brown dolphins. Some data say that it could be an adaptation to life in the river or the presence of capillaries near the surface of the skin, providing them with such an impressive color. They acquire the pink color when they are excited or surprised. They have a longer snout than the sea dolphins, this is due to their adaptation to their environment and their evolution since they need it to find food at the bottom of the river, it also highlights the shape of their teeth that are more pointed than the sea dolphins. Most of the sea dolphins are almost blind because they inhabit the turbid waters of the rivers, they have a bigger and very well developed brain.
