Biologists find albino among Brazil dolphins


Brazilian biologists have found an extremely rare example of an albino dolphin among an endangered species that lives off the southern coast of South America, reports Yahoo News.
Toninha (Brazil) - La Plata or Franciscana Dolphin (Argentina and Uruguay)
The research group, based at Univille University in Santa Catarina, said Thursday that it was the first recorded instance of an albino in the pontoporia blainvillei species, a very shy type of dolphin that rarely jumps out of the water. It's known in Brazil as Toninha and in Argentina and Uruguay as the La Plata or Franciscana dolphin.
