Description

Orange eyes and concave plastron make this guy a ...well a guy. He has very bold, striking markings (particularly the very cool markings on his head...I never got to see his legs as I gave up on watching him after about 20 min) ...quite a lovely ...err...handsome fellow. He looks similar to the default photo of ornata and I am not yet entirely sure it he is eastern or ornate.
