    Chromatophoric! Not much prep needed for that one, methinks. Where did you find this one? (never mind: it says Smoke's Creek. Derp!)

    Great specimen, and a great addition to the Collections.  I hope others will try to emulate the standard set by your presentation.

    That is due to the contrast I used to make the picture look better. ;) 

    When I get a chance to take some new pictures of it in good lighting, I'll replace these, as they are a bit fuzzy.
