Pink Dolphin

Pink Dolphin
With stunningly beautiful, glossy pink skin and reddish eyes, The Pink Dolphin is a freshwater mammal indigenous to the Orinoco, Amazon and Araguaia/Tocantins Rivers. It specializes in hunting in forests, marches and lowland rivers with extensive floodplains. The Pink Dolphin can grow larger than a human—over eight feet in length and more than 200 pounds, with females typically growing larger than males. They like to eat piranhas, crustaceans, crabs, small turtles, shrimp and catfish.

Strengths

Weaknesses
The Pink Dolphin is insecure when they’re on their own; they prefer to travel in numbers.

Best Animal to Adapt With
The Pink Dolphin is intelligent and agile, but lacks strength and stamina. They are great matches to adapt with the speedy Jaguar and energetic Basilisk.

Enemies
Sloth, Jaguar, Man.

Folklore
Amazonian folklore refers to Pink Dolphins as Encantandos, shape shifters that transform into beautiful men and women at night. It’s believed that they cast spells on humans to seduce them and produce illegitimate children. This myth arose in part because dolphin genitalia resembles those of humans.

Pink Dolphins have magical powers—it’s bad luck to kill them and worse to eat them. Since they were once human, they can turn back whenever they want. If a human makes eye contact with Pink Dolphin, they will suffer from lifelong nightmares and your only weapon against them is dried eyeballs.
