Five rare pink Chinese White dolphins were unexpectedly spotted by tourists on an island in Shantou, South China's Guangdong Province on Monday, stunning many netizens with their dreamy colors, with some proclaiming that the real "dolphin princess" has finally made her appearance. 

In a video clip circulating on the internet, five members of this rare species of dolphin, also known as the Indo-Pacific humpback dolphin, swam side by side in nearby waters, jumping up and diving below the surface.  

The color of the newborn Chinese White Dolphin is usually dark gray, which will gradually fade as they grow, and sometimes even turn pink when they reach adulthood. 

Many Chinese netizens were amazed by the scene. "The dolphins must have come from fairy tales, for they are so mischievous." 

Others reminded the public to protect the environment and keep the wonderful marine creatures from being harmed by water pollution.
