    It's a natural color change.
    The photocontest, like everything else is behind schedule. You get some links back today.

    Probably not, but he may develop a marbled pattern, which may or may not be permanent. Young Devils often have shifting color patterns, but once they start changing I've never heard of one going all the way back to the normal striped pattern of the species.
    Happiness may be the door to Heaven,
    But Pleasure is not the Key.

    Default old is it or how big is it? I've seen it before and couldn't believe it was a Devil, but once they reach adulthood, they will most likely turn Red or Pink or a color of similar contrast.
