Comment: RE: Rare pink dolphin

You call the story true - and it may well be - but there is a very
questionable assumption in it:

The article states that the albino dolphin appears pink because blood
vessels under its blubber are giving a pink tone to its flesh.

This ignores every American kid's elementary school biology - blood isn't
red under the skin, it's blue until it makes contact with the air.
