Cool Animal of the Day: The Black and White Dolphin

Posted: May 25, 2017 in Animals, Nature, Things I Love

The Black and White Dolphin isn’t really a species, it’s just a regular dolphin. It’s coloring is a result of leucism, which is a condition in which a partial loss of pigmentation causes animals to have white, pale or patchy discoloration of the skin, hair, feathers, scales or cuticles. This particular dolphin is named Patches and was first spotted back in 2006. By the way, dolphins can live to be about 40-years old, though the average is about 25. Anywho, Black and White Dolphin.



Gimme a holler.
