    The tympanum in adult males is huge, and very close to the eye. The dorsal patterning is totally unique. I'll try to post some photos shortly, but need to resize them first. If anyone wants them, you'll have to brave various nasty jihad groups in Somalia....not recommended. There are only 7 adults in various museums across the world. They are *very* rare and unlikely to make it into the trade anytime soon.
