Rare group of Kinyongia uluguruensis in a private collection. These animals were part of a breeding group imported to the USA from Tanzania in June 2014. The males have serrated rostral blades that can be quite variable in length and orientation. Some individuals have them parallel, while others diverge like the male in the photo.
