The Chinese white dolphin, nicknamed the "giant panda of the sea", is under first-class state protection in China. Although the name "Chinese white dolphin" might suggest that the animal's color is white, the adult dolphins are usually pink. When the dolphin is first born, their skin is dark grey, and as they grow older, they turn into a lighter grey color and eventually become pink. The pink color is due to the blood vessels underneath the skin.
