Thanks Chris this is a hot spot area for Rosenbergs. Hopefully we will be able to compare the patterning on these animals with those recently photographed to check whether they are the same or different animals.

Happy to help, I have a couple more pics of them, if that helps.

Yes extra pictures would be great - you can load up to 5 pictures to CNM. If you hit the edit tab of this record you will be able to add two more pictures. If you have more than that could you please email them to me at
