Identification Commonly found for sale as juveniles which are brown with occasionally faint pink in colour but they will always show vertical striping over the top half of the body. There will also be a brown line below the eye. When they start to mature into adult colouration, the body will turn pink (not red) and the dark pattern will fade away. The brown line below the eye will also change into a red marking.
