|"Chaos" River Road Alterna
Adult female. One of the early examples of the Chaos gene at work. The orange on this animal was not much in evidence as a juvenile. The vertebral striping and orange suffusion in the nuchal area appeared with the onset of maturity. The Chaos birthmark, covering nearly 1/3 of the anterior dorsal area, is prominent on this example. This particular pattern is difficult to verbally describe so we'll leave it to the photograph.
