The pink dolphin, or boto, is found in the fresh waters of the Amazon, Araguaia/Tocantins, and Orinoco river systems. It is the most intelligent of the four species of river dolphin, with a brain capacity 40 percent larger than a human’s. Botos are light gray at birth but can turn light or hot pink as adults. This crazy coloration may be because of blood vessels just beneath the surface of the boto’s skin, but their color can also depend on how murky the water is where they live. They darken to a bluish-gray in their old age. Long-snouted, with small eyes, bulges of extra skin, and a hump instead of a dorsal fin, botos look less like Flipper and more like some kind of river dinosaur.
