A pink dolphin spotted in Lake Calasieu in Louisiana.

'Good Morning America' showed footage of the calf, an albino bottlenose, which ordinarily is gray, according to biologists.

The rare albino apparently was swimming with his mother on the lake, which is an inland saltwater estuary north of the Gulf of Mexico.
