The pink river dolphin, it is the largest of the river dolphins. In Colombia, they live in the Amazon and Orinoco rivers basins. They characterize for being very social and very curious to foreign objects, opposite from their sea dolphin cousins. Their skin changes as they age. As younglings they are grey, and as they dive into adulthood shades of mottled pink arise.
Dolphins are important indicators of the health of the rivers they live in, which are also the main source of water for millions of people in Colombia. However, factors such as pollution, dams, shipping and bycatch have taken their toll on this iconic dolphin by endangering their species.
