Weird looking. I have only seen them in stores and the color vaires greatly with the amount of red covering the head.

You can have a lot of red in some and almost none in others.

Sometimes they have red in the flank but not often.

i would def. like to see some pictures. The profile on this site doesn't show any red. I like trophs that you dont regularly see.

There is a range of color in them, I have read and been told that look like this. I have even been told they sometimes turn grey.
