Pink is not all that common in the animal kingdom, but hey, tell that these guys.
1. Chinese white dolphin
Chinese white dolphins appear more pink than white because their blood vessels are close to the surface of their skin. They are found in Hong Kong’s harbor, but due to human activity, their numbers are dwindling.

4. Pink katydid
Pink katydids are a rare form of the common oblong-winged katydid. The vivid pink is the result of a rare genetic mutation called erythrism that causes redness in fur, feathers, and skin.
5.Red Bald Uakari monkey
This small primate is found in Peru and the western Amazon of Brazil. Due to deforestation and hunting, it is classified as vulnerable on the IUCN red list.

6. Elephant hawk moth
Elephant hawk moths are found in the UK and Ireland, and are so named because as a caterpillar they look similar to an elephant’s trunk.

7. Pink crab spider
Crab spiders are found pretty much everywhere in the world. They produce silk, but rather than making webs to trap their prey, most of them prefer to hunt by ambush.

Pink grasshoppers, like the pink katydids, are the result of erythrism, a mutation that has been spotted in several common grasshopper species.
