A Rare Pink Dolphin Has a Baby, and Now the Chance of Seeing More of Them Is Growing

Published

on

The bottlenose dolphin is one of the 34 best-known marine mammal species. It’s sociable, intelligent, and gained popularity in the ’60s thanks to the TV show, Flipper. This animal also has a unique feature: it can live in warm or temperate waters anywhere in the world.

Additionally, the bottlenose dolphin boasts “special protection” status to avoid being hunted for commercial purposes. This is why when a pink subspecies appeared on the Calcasieu River in the United States, everyone was surprised and immediately wanted to see it.

Bright Side is worried about the alarming environmental issues that our planet is facing and would like to share this good news on the striking species that step by step is beginning to bear offspring.

1. Is this a rare subspecies of the bottlenose dolphin?

It was 2007 when Captain Erik Reu was sailing down the Calcasieu River in Louisiana, United States. Everything appeared normal until he noticed a group of bottlenose dolphins. In his attempt to view such a scene, he was taken by surprise when he realized that one of them was pink. According to Reu, the dolphin seemed to be in excellent condition and since then, he has been able to catch a glimpse of it several times.

2. It could be albino or suffer from a type of dimorphism.

So far, there is no scientific or conclusive evidence as to why this bottlenose dolphin and its companion, the pink dolphin, are this color. Some suppose it is because of sexual dimorphism which is a difference in the shape, size, and color of features in males and females of the same species. Meanwhile, Greg Barsh, a scientist at the HudsonAlpha Biotechnology Institute in Alabama, believes that the bottlenose dolphin could be albino because of a genetic variation of color.

3. The truth lies in the color of its eyes.

One of the most revealing signs that would unveil the dolphin’s albino condition is the color of its eyes, which according to Captain Reu, are red. It’s likely that its parents were carriers of the gene mutation that would breed a pink colored mammal, therefore, they produced a pink dolphin.

4. The dolphin has been seen together with 2 small dolphins of the same color.

Thomas Adams, a local sailor, revealed that Pinky, the dolphin that appeared in 2007, still lives in the river and now swims close to others. “I have heard that there were 2 pink dolphins. Well, there definitely are,” he said in his video.

5. Everyone is startled when they see them.

In 2017, a couple saw the animals. “It was amazing to see them! We saw 2, but we could not record them at the time. I was surprised,” said Bridget Boudreaux, who recorded the video that would later become famous throughout the United States.

6. Pinky could have 2 babies which would be big news.

With these videos as evidence, the theory that Pinky could have babies has emerged. This is excellent news for the preservation of the exotic pink species of bottlenose dolphins.

What is your opinion about this discovery? Do you think this rare pink dolphin species can be preserved? Share your ideas in the comments!

According to the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH), Instagram is the most harmful social media for psychological health. Every day, we are disappointed when we start comparing our lives to the photos online without even thinking about how these perfect pictures were created. Fortunately, there are users who are ready to reveal what their lives look like without photoshop and filters.

Bright Side is happy to show the photos that will not only give you confidence, but will also improve your mood.

It’s not just bodies and faces that get tune-ups on Instagram. The locals would be amazed to see the photo on the left.

Each successful photo actually means there were hundreds of failed attempts.

10 Powerful Sculptures That Tell a Story Better Than Any Novel Could

Published

on

By

We often take sculptures that surround us for granted, thinking that their only message is the one in plain sight. But it turns out that many of them have a deeper meaning like an angel that is made of weapons given up by those who never want to commit crimes again or a group of ginormous figures that tell us how a new life is born. Sculptures have a whole lot of good stories to share if you’re willing to listen.

Come with Bright Side on a little journey around the globe to see 10 eloquent monuments and sculptures and learn the stories behind them.

1. Knife Angel by Alfie Bradley has persuaded hundreds of people to give up violence.

Alfie Bradley created this breathtaking 27-foot-high angel made of more than 100,000 knives. These weapons were surrendered to knife bins around the UK and were collected by the UK police, knife crime charities, action groups and other people who were affected by knife crimes in one way or another. The Knife Angel travels around the UK to educate people on how important the problem of knife crime is and how dangerous these weapons are. You can learn more about The Knife Angel, the process of its creation, and its current locations here.

2. The Passer-Through-Walls by Jean Marais illustrates the final scene from a famous French novel.

Le Passe-Muraille is a French novel by Marcel Aymé that tells the story of a modest office worker who one day discovers that he has a superpower — he can walk through walls! The hero uses his gift to the fullest to solve problems and becomes a burglar, gets into prison, and escapes until one day he loses his power right on his way through a wall and gets stuck in it. This monument is also quite interactive — the man’s hands are polished by thousands of people who try to help him get out of the wall.

3. Building Bridges by Lorenzo Quinn shares a recipe for a better world.

How do we make our world a better place to live in? Friendship, wisdom, help, faith, hope, and love — these are the ingredients to a better world and happier people according to Lorenzo Quinn, a famous Italian artist. These 6 virtues are embodied in the 6 pairs of hands that build a bridge together. This is one of the latest works by Quinn that was built for 2019’s Venice Art Biennale.

4. Corporate Head by Terry Allen tells us about the danger of being focused on profit at all costs.

The impressive life-sized bronze sculpture of a man who has buried his head in the building resides in Los Angeles, California in the US. The sculpture embodies a businessman who has devoted all his life to gaining profit for himself and the company he works for. He is separated from the office building only from his neck down, which means his thoughts have been completely absorbed by the establishment he works for.

The sculpture illustrates the modern pace of life where people have to carry an economic burden and spend their whole lives working in businesses, often missing out on things that are way more important than material wealth.

5. Sphere Within a Sphere by Arnaldo Pomodoro reminds us of how fragile our planet is.

This wonderful statue mesmerizes viewers with a complex structure of fractured spheres — the outer one and the inner one — and numerous intricate gears inside. The artist, Arnaldo Pomodoro, liked to study simple geometrical forms in his work and managed to hide deep meaning behind those simple forms. The Sphere Within a Sphere once again reminds us how everything in the universe is interconnected, how fragile our world is, and how easily it can be broken into pieces.

6. The Man Who Measures the Clouds by Jan Fabre speaks about the struggles of measuring the immeasurable.

This unique artwork with the gold leaf finishing touch is part of 2019’s Venice Art Biennale and it shows viewers a man rising to a height of 29.5 feet (9 meters) and trying to measure the clouds with a ruler. This sculpture can be interpreted as a person’s desperate attempt to make the impossible possible, as our never-ending striving to surpass ourselves as mankind, or as a nod to ancient philosophy that thought that human beings were the measure of all things.

7. Inertia and The Bankers by Jason Decaires Taylor tackle social issues and call for our responsibility.

The Bankers, Inertia and other marvelous underwater sculptures by Jason Decaires Taylor reveal the most acute problems of modern society, like being obsessed with material wealth and being exposed to mass media’s influence. But apart from that, these unbelievable works serve as homes for coral that are on the verge of extinction in many regions of our planet. By placing his masterpieces underwater in Mexico, the Bahamas, and other places, the artist tries to attract more attention to global climate changes and the things we can do to protect the earth.

8. Absorbed by Light by Gali Lucas and Karoline Hinz honestly tell us how obsessed we’ve become with gadgets and technology.

3 people sitting on a bench, absorbed by their smartphones so much so that they don’t even notice each other. What could illustrate our era better? The installation that was part of the Amsterdam Light Festival symbolizes how modern technology connects and disconnects us at the same time. When you walk at night next time, look around and you’ll see the same picture — dozens of people all around with their faces lit up by their mobile phones. We actually are absorbed by these lights, aren’t we?

9. Trains to Life — Trains to Death by Frank Meisler commemorates children whose lives were saved and taken during the Holocaust.

The impressive work by Frank Meisler is located in Berlin, Germany, and it has 2 parts — 5 figures of boys and girls in dark bronze on one side, and a boy and a girl made of light bronze on the other side. The kids in these 2 parts of the monument gaze into different directions and symbolize 2 different outcomes that awaited children during the Holocaust. The group of 5 figures commemorates the 1.6 million Jewish kids that were sent to concentration camps and were killed, while 2 other kids pay tribute to those 10,000 children that were saved and transported to England.

10. The Miraculous Journey by Damien Hirst shows the stages of a baby’s growth in the womb.

This amazing monument located outside the Sidra Medical and Research Centre in Doha, Qatar, consists of 14 large-scale bronze sculptures, each of them showing a stage of an embryo’s growth in the womb from conception to birth. Being extremely explicit and bold, The Miraculous Journey evoked controversial feelings in the eastern audience and was even covered from public view for some time.

Here’s what Damien Hirst, the creator of the monument said about the ideas he addressed in his work: “Ultimately, the journey a baby goes through before birth is bigger than anything it will experience in its human life. I hope the sculpture will instill in the viewer a sense of awe and wonder at this extraordinary human process, which will soon be occurring in the Sidra Medical Center, as well as every second all across the globe.”

Which of these monuments would you like to see with your own eyes? Can you share with us a picture of a sculpture or a monument that impressed you?
