    Got a call out this afternoon and found this fella. Haven't seen such a marked lack of colour on a CTS for a couple of years. Thought I would share.

    About 10% of CTS in Townsville are this variation.
    I've seen about 12 that color(last was 3 days ago)

    A friend of mine has one that I would class as axanthic. No yellow what so ever. Pretty much just almost black and white. Really cool looking critter.
