Nhewyt Posted November 16, 2008 Share Posted November 16, 2008 I am curious as to if the G. oblongata can be as variable as the P. Vanderbeckie? Everything that I have read and the photos that I have seen online say and show a very large hisser which is very red/mahogany in color. However, I have about a dozen of them (all from the same source) with 6 of them being either adult or near to adult and the color is nearly black with minimal red/mahogany. In fact, one absolutely HUGE adult male is very nearly solid black in color. The form of the body looks like the online pictures I have seen, just the colors seem really dark and not nearly as reddish as I would expect from what I've seen and read online. So, questions - ...are these really G. oblongata? ...are G. oblongata often blacker rather than reddish? ...could these be a color morph of G.oblongata? I will try to get a picture if necessary - but I have to find all my camera goodies first (tripod, lights, etc.) and make sure my battery is charged. I was hoping that perhaps someone would know the answer just from the description. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
