I hope this baby's chances of survival are better than stated in the article! If it leaves the bay, it's a target for predators because of its color (or lack thereof). If it stays in the bay, it lives in a mix of industrial and human waste. Let's hope for a positive outcome for this rare and beautiful creature!
