Image ID: 320-00

Comments : This is a juvenile of the species. The adults have a carapace and legs covered with scale-like plates. Color from greenish gray to reddish. I can't say that I've ever seen an adult (at least I haven't got a picture of one), but I've seen a couple of these juveniles at Sekiu, as they stand out nicely being so white.
