Found this lovely specimen this afternoon.
Wide pattern on the back, and lots of black on the sides, with silvergrey stripes.

Wow… that really is pretty, nice find Jimmy. 8-)
I saw this silver and black male last September and at the time I thought I bet he would look handsome in his breeding colours!
Going to look for him tomorrow so I hope he came through the winter ok…

Thanks guys, it was a stunner. "kazna"-looking zigzag as Mario says.

Hi Jimmy,
I visited the site of that silver black male yesterday but I never saw him this time!
I saw what is for me the darkest berus I’ve seen so far though; it had beautiful skin like dark velvet.

Thats a nice one Tony, an "incompleted" melanistic, that kept a cool pattern.
