Play with the Dolphins

Botos, or Amazon River Dolphins in a hotel play yard, Manaus, Brazil Manaus, Brazil ~ April 23, 2007

We found these botos, or pink Amazon River dolphins in the play yard of the Tropical Manaus Hotel in Manaus, Brazil. Although the pink coloration and long beak are typical of this dolphin, the real animals have a shorter dorsal fin, more like a hump. The play yard had other native animals in it, and I believe they were made by the talented woman who ran one of the gift shops at the hotel.
