Wow. When I look at pictures, it is certaintly possible to see a difference in the head of the black-lined plated and Lizzy. But with the picturs of G. major bottegoi, the coloration is wrong. He has a lot more red. It might just be pictures. The weird thing is that I've had two different "experts" tell me that he's a black-lined, and when I did research on the web, he always matched up with pictures. Now I'm wondering if my brain is fried.

I certaintly feel very stupid.

If you look at these sites, you can certaintly see the close resemblence:

I've honestly never heard of female lizards getting femoral pores clogged with wax before though.
